Big Tech Update

The European Union (EU) isn’t too happy with Apple right now and it just brought antitrust charges against the company to prove its point. 


Apple’s charges stemmed from a complaint initially filed by Spotify that brought the company’s app store policies into question. After investigating the complaint, the EU determined that Apple’s app store policies violated EU competition rules.

Part of the EU’s focus is that Apple requires developers to use its in-app purchasing system (and Apple gets a 30 percent kick back on that), and another rule that forbids app developers to inform users of purchasing options outside of apps. 

What else caught the EU’s attention and what type of punishment will Apple face due to the charges?
