Technology companies have reputations. Google tends to push the envelope, whereas Apple takes time to refine things, not worrying about being “first.” That’s why it’s so strange to see Safari on the iPhone get extensions before Chrome on Android.
Starting in iOS 15, Safari for the iPhone and iPad can download extensions through the App Store. And these extensions aren’t just from Apple. Third parties can create them as well. It’s the same functionality that has been in Safari for desktop for years.
