Apple will soon make a code review mandatory for all applications distributed outside its own Mac App Store by new developers, a first step towards requiring all Mac software to pass similar reviews.
The Cupertino, Calif. company argued that the process, which it calls “notarization,” would build a more secure macOS environment. “We’re working with developers to create a safer Mac user experience through a process where all software, whether distributed on the [Mac] App Store or outside of it, is signed or notarized by Apple,” the company stated in an April 10 message on its developer portal.
