- Apple responds to Spotify's complaints, saying it tailored facts
- Spotify hits back saying every monopolist thinks they've done nothing wrong
A few days ago, it was reported that Spotify had filed a complaint against Apple in the European Union over the Apple Tax and restrictive rules that Apple imposes on apps that are a part of the App Store. Spotify claimed in its complaint that for those apps not willing to pay the 30 percent cut of in-app purchases, Apple prohibits such apps from linking to or even mentioning any means of alternative payment. This, Spotify claims, is an unfair practice and prohibits fair competition since no such restrictions are applicable to Apple’s own Apple Music. Spotify has also detailed the alleged unfair ways in which Apple has prevented Spotify from giving a good user experience to its customers by rejecting app updates, allowing Siri integration and even prohibiting a Spotify app for the Apple watch for the longest time.
