This innovation permits users to log into new apps and services using an Apple ID, clarifying the signup process down to just like a snap.
While some of the developers have criticized that Apple hires their thoughts and fights unjustly.

Well, Apple may be satisfied with this feature, but Blix, the inventor of an email client Blue Mail affirms that the Cupertino giant encroaches on its patents. It has listed a lawsuit on the company with the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware, stating that Apple stole the mail app’s “Share Email” innovation and mixed it with the new “Sign in with Apple” feature.
Blue Mail doesn’t claim to be the first company to think of masked email addresses. There are various other services that give a similar feature. But it’s suing Apple of utilizing its trademarked process for making it, which Blue Mail says is novel and user-friendly.
Blue Mail began a desktop application for Mac. As per the lawsuit, the app was rising the rankings in the market before it suffered an email from Apple, notifying Blue Mail that it had disrupted Apple’s terms of service. The app was spam, or it was too comparable to other apps.
According to similarity mentioned in the claim, Blue Mail propelled Apple for more aspects of why it was being rejected from the Mac App Store. Apple acknowledged, quoting Blue Mail’s connection to another mail client called TypeApp. That one, though, was also occupied by Blue Mail’s parent company, and the organization had ended advising it on the App Store.
In response, Blue Mail asked how it could be too alike TypeApp when TypeApp was no more available in the App store.
