If Apple is forced to open up NFC, they do have the ability to design an API and rules (via App Review) to continue to protect customer privacy. Additionally, they could enforce a quid pro quo via that API with entities, like banks, to ensure that Apple Pay support needs to be added before their apps/payment methods can be enabled. These are two areas, privacy and customer choice, that the EU wouldn't push back on.

Aren’t they a bigger manufacturer of electronic goods and consumer durables? Why isn’t Samsung 100% renewable like Apple? Why isn’t Samsung investing hundreds of millions in grants for environmental projects like the above Kenya grasslands? Does Samsung have a Liam to disassemble and recycle its smartphones?
The world may have to rely on fossil fuels for some time to come yet but at least Apple is trying to do something about it. What about its competitors?
If Steve were alive ... etc.
