Apple was smacked a huge $2 billion fine from the EU for breaking competition laws. This fine came as a result from Apple not letting music apps like Spotify tell customers they could get cheaper subscriptions outside the App Store. Apple has it’s own competing service, Apple Music, so as a result, the EU said this hurt millions of Europeans who couldn’t choose freely where to buy their music subscriptions. Apple argues that their app market is competitive and denies harming consumers. As usual, Apple said “who me?” and claimed that what they do is not wrong.

The iPhone forces Spotify and other apps to hide cheaper subscription options.
