The announcement is in advance of an EU requirement that Apple and other gatekeepers allow third party app stores on their platforms. The Digital Markets Act (DMA) has already gone into force and companies will be forced to comply by March 6 2024 at the latest.

It's rumored that Apple will only comply with the legislation in the EU; however, the company has yet to announce any formal plans to allow sideloading or rival app stores. Please download the iClarified app or follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and RSS for further updates.
