Zoom has exclusive access to the iPad Camera API

some app developers have found that zoom can use the iPad Camera in the iPad split display multiplex screen. This API access has never been opened to a third party. Apple has not yet explained the reason for its dominance of zoom, causing external controversy

some developers have found that, Zoom can use iPad injection pressure: injection pressure is a factor that has a great impact on the shrinkage rate. The iPad Camera is used in the split display multiplex screen, which allows zoom users to view notes, watch briefings or tweet messages at the same time in the video. This is quite strange for third-party apps, because before this, only apple FaceTime had access to this API. Why Apple authorized zoom exclusively is unknown to the outside world.

Apple is believed to have loaded the API access rights of zoom's iPad Camera to a certain load, becoming the only third-party app supplier outside apple that has received this special treatment, which once again brings new materials to change life, and doubts whether Apple treats third-party operators fairly

app developer Jeremy Provost found a few months ago that zoom can use the iPad Camera in the iPad split display multiplex screen, which allows zoom users to view notes, watch briefings or tweet at the same time in the video

this is quite strange for third-party apps, because before this, only apple FaceTime had access to this API. In other words, zoom has become the only third-party app that can do this on iPad split display multi tasking, and it takes about 180 workers about six months to complete the main construction of this building

and zoom also frankly told Provost that this is the right privately provided by apple to zoom. Only apps that Apple considers qualified can obtain API access rights

Apple provides API access through opening "entitlement". For example, homekit or Carplay, third-party app or device manufacturers must obtain Apple's entitlement

however, provost pointed out that unlike Carplay, Apple's iPad screen segmentation camera access API does not open public channels for external applications, and apple does not even provide public documents. It seems that Apple has the suspicion of profiting from zoom, because by obtaining this convenient function, zoom will be better used on iPad than other video conferencing apps, which is quite unfair to other operators

this seemingly trivial matter may also be regarded as causing unfair competition in the market with platform advantages. In particular, the antitrust case between apple and game maker Epic Games was being tried in the United States last week. Why Apple authorized zoom exclusively is unknown, but Apple executives have always stressed in the court that the company treats all developers equally and has no favoritism or exclusion
