Despite having previously refuted accusations of anticompetitive behavior and stated that it encourages competition on the App Store, Apple declined to comment on the report.

When the Justice Department met with developers to learn more about the App Store’s review procedure and enquired about Apple’s regulations regarding the App Store in 2019, the inquiry got underway. Apple will be subject to an antitrust lawsuit by the US government if the Justice Department decides to proceed with a complaint.

Over the past few years, Apple has been accused of engaging in anticompetitive behavior in numerous other nations, including the UK, France, Germany, the Netherlands, South Korea, Japan, and more, with numerous allegations relating to the App Store. As a result, Apple was compelled to update the App Store in some nations. For instance, South Korean developers can now offer alternate payment methods.
