Riley Testut posts about no longer trusting Apple with app notarization:

When we first met with the EC a few months ago, we were asked repeatedly if we trusted Apple to be in charge of Notarization. We emphatically said yes.

However, it’s clear to us now that Apple is indeed using Notarization to not only delay our apps, but also to determine on a case-by-case basis how to undermine each release

iOS notarization for marketplaces needs to be reverted to how it works on the Mac. Bad actors can still be stopped without adding another layer to app review.
