The US DOJ has sued Apple again. This time it’s based on the idea that the iPhone and it’s ecosystem are a monopoly. Some of the core of the lawsuit is around the blocking of cross-platform messaging, the limiting of smartwatch compatibility, as well as limited 3rd party wallet items. They also attacked items like the lack of support for non-Apple Store applications. It’s similar to some of the approaches taken recently by the European Union, which means that Apple may have some troubles ahead. Perhaps if Apple were a little less aggressive with their intellectual property, but then again, we could wish that the IRS were a little less aggressive with their audits.

Apple and its iPhone and App Store business have been eyed by the Department of Justice, which previously filed antitrust suits against Google.
