    Italy fined Amazon and Apple $225 million for anti-competitive cooperation of sales of Apple and Beats products, violating European Union laws. An agreement between the two companies in 2018 allegedly limited access to Italy's Amazon marketplace by allowing their products only to be sold through specific resellers, according to the Italian Competition Authority. Amazon and Apple dispute the judgments and plan to appeal the fines. "We reject the suggestion that Amazon benefits by excluding sellers from our store, since our business model relies on their success," an Amazon spokesperson told Reuters in a statement. "As a result of the agreement, Italian customers can find the latest Apple and Beats products on our store, benefiting from a catalogue that more than doubled, with better deals and faster shipping." STARBUCKS AND AMAZON PARTNER TO OPEN CASHIER-LESS NY STORE AMID LABOR STRUGGLES Apple said that though it respects Italy's Competition Authority, using approved resellers ensures that customers are receiving legitimate Apple products. “Non-genuine products deliver an inferior experience and can often be dangerous," Apple said, according to...
    Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney used a speech at a South Korea conference discussing mobile app platform policies as an opportunity to lambast longtime legal adversaries Apple and Google, slamming the tech giants once again for their stranglehold on the mobile app market. 'Apple must be stopped,' Sweeney, 50, said to a packed room at the ongoing Global Conference for Mobile Application Ecosystem Fairness in Seoul on Monday. The founder of the video game company responsible for the wildly popular online multiplayer sensation Fortnite also condemned search giant Google during his time on the podium, criticizing the company as 'crazy' for how it handles app purchases.  Sweeney, an outspoken and longtime critic of both Apple's and Google's app store policies, then offered his own vision to attendees of the conference - a universal app store where users could 'buy software in one place, knowing that they'd have it on all devices and all platforms.' 'What the world really needs now is a single store that works with all platforms,' the CEO further stated after the speech in an interview with...
    Apple has agreed to pay $29.9 million to store workers in California after the Supreme Court ruled Friday against the tech giant's policy of forcing its employees to submit to security bag checks, despite them being off the clock. The ruling comes following an eight-year legal battle, when a group of Apple employees sued their employer back in 2013, arguing the company was violating California state law by not paying them for their time spent undergoing the security checks, according to court documents. The employees also had to let their Apple products be inspected and verified during the searches.  'This is a significant, non-reversionary settlement reached after nearly eight years of hard-fought litigation,' the plaintiffs' attorney Lee Shalov, wrote in the proposed settlement. 'If approved, this will be the largest reported settlement in a security search case in California,' Shalov added prior to Friday's ruling.   The lawsuit specifically covers employees who work at California's 52 Apple stores. Apple agreed to pay $29.9 million to store workers in California due to the tech giant forcing its employees to submit to security bag checks,...
    Tim Cook, chief executive officer of Apple Inc., center, arrives at U.S. district court in Oakland, California, on Friday, May 21, 2021.Nina Riggio | Bloomberg | Getty Images Apple will be forced to allow app developers to link out to alternative payment websites, potentially enabling software companies to reduce the 15% to 30% fee that Apple charges for digital transactions through its App Store. On Tuesday, a federal judge in Oakland, Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers, rejected Apple's appeal for a stay that would delay the change, meaning that it will go into effect in December. "In short, Apple's motion is based on a selective reading of this Court's findings and ignores all of the findings which supported the injunction, namely incipient antitrust conduct including supercompetitive commission rates resulting in extraordinarily high operating margins and which have not been correlated to the value of its intellectual property," Rogers wrote in the order, calling Apple's motion "fundamentally flawed." In September, Rogers ruled in favor of Apple for nine of 10 counts in an antitrust trial brought by Epic Games. Epic was seeking the...
    New York (CNN Business)Tim Cook is a cryptocurrency owner. But don't call him a bitcoin bull. "I don't want to put any labels on me, it's just that it's something, from a personal point of view, I'm interested in," the Apple CEO told journalist Andrew Ross Sorkin at the New York Times DealBook Summit Tuesday. Cook didn't specify which tokens he owns but said, "I think it's reasonable to own [crypto] as part of a diversified portfolio. ... I've been interested in it for a while." Still, cryptocurrency enthusiasts shouldn't hold their breath for the day when they can buy an iPhone using bitcoin. Cook said he has no plans in the immediate future to accept crypto as a means of payment for Apple (AAPL) products. He added that he also doesn't plan to invest any of Apple's cash in cryptocurrency. Some other companies, most notably Tesla and Jack Dorsey's payments company Square, have invested in crypto directly and, for a short time, Tesla accepted bitcoin as payment."I don't think people buy an Apple stock to get exposure to crypto,"...

    Craig Federighi, Senior Vice President Software Engineering speaks during Apple's annual world wide developer conference (WWDC) in San Jose, California, U.S. June 5, 2017.Stephen Lam | Reuters Proposed European regulation that could force Apple to allow iPhone users to install software from the web would open '"Pandora's box" and could pose threats to entire networks of computers, Apple software senior vice president Craig Federighi said in a speech on Wednesday. The remarks at Web Summit in Lisbon, Portugal represent an escalation in Apple's rhetoric about what could go wrong if Apple is forced to change its App Store policies. Regulators and lawmakers around the world are scrutinizing the company's control over iPhone software. Apple is particularly concerned about the Digital Markets Act, which CEO Tim Cook has previously said would result in Apple being forced to allow "sideloading," or the ability to install iPhone apps from the web instead of through Apple's App Store. "European policymakers have often been ahead of the curve," Federighi said. "But requiring sideloading on iPhone would be a step backward. Instead of creating choice, it...
    Tim CookSource: Apple Apple's products compete as gaming platforms with Sony Playstation, Microsoft Xbox and Nintendo, the company said on Friday in a regulatory filing. Previously, Apple only said it competed against Google's Android in smartphones and Microsoft Windows in PCs for the attention of software developers. Apple's competitors were an important topic in a high-profile antitrust trial with Epic Games earlier this year in which Apple argued that it didn't have a monopoly because its App Store competed against other gaming platforms that also offered Epic's Fortnite, the Epic app Apple banned from its store. At the time, the company did not list gaming consoles as competitors in its SEC filings. Ultimately, the judge ruled that Apple did not have a monopoly in the market for "mobile gaming transactions," but ordered the company to change its business practices and allow developers to link out to payment methods not operated by Apple. Epic Games and Apple are appealing the ruling. The update in Apple's annual filing also reflects how much money the company makes from gaming on its phones and...
    In this photo illustration the Duolingo logo seen displayed on a smartphone.Rafael Henrique | LightRocket | Getty Images Shares of app developers like Bumble, Duolingo and Roblox rose on Thursday after Google said it would reduce the company's cut from subscriptions on its Android app store. The change by Google would cut the commission on recurring subscriptions through the Google Play store from 30% to 15%, a move that could significantly reduce costs for any company that makes a lot of money through in-app purchases. Google also said it would introduce a new program for apps that have large content costs, like streaming music or TV shows, which could lower Google's take even farther to 10%. Google and Apple have both been slashing fees amid pressure from lawmakers and regulators over the power that the dominant app stores hold within their developer ecosystems. Google went even further than Apple, which has cut its take from 30% to 15% in many cases, including for apps making less than $1 million per year, news apps, and other services. "This is great news!"...
    In this article AAPLSundar Pichai, Google testifies at congressional hearing, March 25, 2021.CNBCGoogle said on Thursday that it's lowering service fees in its app store after a similar move by Apple. Both companies have faced pressure to make their app stores more accessible to developers as lawmakers weigh new rules that could overhaul their business models. Google said in a press release that it would cut the service fee for subscriptions on its Google Play store from 30% to 15% from day one. Under the current model, developers must pay a 30% cut on subscriptions to Google for the first 12 months before the commission drops down to 15%. Google said 99% of developers would qualify for the lower service fee. Google also said on Thursday that it was introducing a program to allow e-books, music streaming services, and other apps that pay for content to access fees as low as 10%. Apple doesn't make exceptions for those kind of apps and doesn't offer a 10% fee to developers in its app store. Apple, which has received more regulator attention...
    Makers of apps that allow users to read and listen to the Bible and Quran, including Amazon’s Audible, announced Friday they had removed such apps from China’s Apple Store citing Chinese government “permit requirements.” A Bible app developer based in Spokane, Washington, named Olive Tree Bible Software said it removed its app from China’s Apple store “after learning from Apple’s App Store review process that it needed special permission to distribute an app with ‘book or magazine content,'” the Associated Press (AP) reported on October 16.

    South Korean regulators are expected to take issue with Apple in the coming weeks following recently passed laws that state smartphone vendors must allow app developers to use third-party payment processors. Google has told the country it intends to comply with the law, but Apple is courting a fight over its stranglehold over developers. Breitbart News has previously reported on a South Korean law that states that tech giants such as Apple and Google must allow developers in the company’s app stores to take payments via third-party processors. Currently, Apple and Google require all in-app purchases to be made via their respective payment processors, allowing the companies to take a 15 to 30 percent cut of all payments made via their platforms.

    Popular Bible and Quran apps were deleted from Apple’s Chinese app store this week following pressure from Chinese authorities, according to multiple reports. Both Bible App, a bible study app manufactured by Olive Tree, and Quran Majeed, developed by PDMS, were removed from Apple’s Chinese app store on Tuesday, according to Apple Censorship, a website that tracks the removal of apps from the App Store. Apple confirmed to the PDMS that it deleted Quran Majeed from its Chinese App Store. “According to Apple, our app Quran Majeed has been removed from the China App Store because it includes content that is illegal in China as determined by the (Cyberspace Administration of China), which is not in compliance with the App Store Review Guidelines,” said Hasan Shafiq Ahmed, head of growth at PDMS, according to Business Insider. “We are trying to get in touch with (Cyberspace Administration of China) and relevant Chinese authorities to get this issue resolved as we had close to a million users for our app in China that have been impacted.

    (CNN Business)Apple is asking a court to put on hold its injunction that would allow iPhone developers to direct users away from the company's App Store for online payments. The company on Friday filed a motion with the US District Court for the Northern District of California asking it to stay a September 10 injuction under a lawsuit against Apple by video game company Epic Games. The injunction, currently scheduled to take effect December 9, states that Apple (AAPL) can no longer prohibit developers from adding links within their apps to outside payment options; for example, alerting users to the option to pay for a subscription on a web browser, rather than through the app.Apple is asking the court to suspend that requirement by November, weeks before the deadline when it will be required to make the changes to the App Store requirements. The request accompanied Apple's formal appeal of the September decision.

    Tim Cook, chief executive officer of Apple Inc., center, arrives at U.S. district court in Oakland, California, on Friday, May 21, 2021.Nina Riggio | Bloomberg | Getty Images Apple filed a notice of appeal in the Epic Games case and is asking for a stay on the injunction that lets developers add in-app links to payment websites, according to company representatives and documents filed on Friday. If Apple wins the stay, which will be decided by a judge in November, a rule change potentially allowing developers to circumvent App Store fees of 15% to 30% may not take effect until appeals in the case have finished, a process that could take years. Federal judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers ruled in September in favor of Apple for nine of 10 counts in an antitrust trial brought by Epic, the maker of Fortnite. Epic was seeking the ability to install its own app store on iPhones. Kate Adams, Apple's general counsel, said at the time the ruling was a "huge win." But Apple was also ordered to make a major change to its store...

    A group of protesters descended on an Apple store in New York City on Saturday, blasting the company for its production in China associated with forced labor in Xinjiang province and the Uyghur genocide. The protesters gathered in front of the store on the corner of 67th and Broadway in Manhattan’s Upper West Side at 3:00 p.m., holding “Divest Uyghur Genocide” signs. They chanted, “What do we want? Justice for Uyghurs. When do we want it? Now!” and informed passing pedestrians of the alleged links between Apple and China’s industrial slavery practices. Daily Caller “Apple has chosen to embed itself in a slave state — a state notorious for its concentration camps and slave labor. That’s a disgrace,” Philip Hamburger, a protester, told the Daily Caller.

The State Department sent out an advisory in July advising businesses that operating in Xinjiang, China, could lead them to violate human rights laws amid continued reports of forced labor and genocide in the...
    CUPERTINO (CBS / AP) — Tim Sweeney, CEO of Fortnite maker Epic Games Inc., said Wednesday it’s been told by Apple that the game will be “blacklisted from the Apple ecosystem” until the companies’ legal case is resolved and all appeals are exhausted, which could take as long as five years. Sweeney posted on Twitter that Epic has asked Apple to reinstate Fortnite and promised “that it will adhere to Apple’s guidelines whenever and wherever we release products on Apple’s platforms.” “Apple spent a year telling the world, the court, and the press they’d ‘welcome Epic’s return to the App Store if they agree to play by the same rules as everyone else.’ Epic agreed, and now Apple has reneged in another abuse of its monopoly power over a billion users,” Sweeney tweeted. A representative for Apple, headquartered in Cupertino, did not immediately respond to a message for comment. Earlier this month, the federal judge overseeing the companies’ legal scuffle ordered Apple to dismantle a lucrative part of the competitive barricade guarding its closely run iPhone app store, but rejected allegations that the...

    Apple threatened to remove Facebook's apps from the App Store in 2019, following a BBC report that showed human traffickers set up 'slave markets' to sell women to the highest bidder, according to The Wall Street Journal. The WSJ obtained internal documents from the social media firm that detail how its own employees were searching for human traffickers in the Middle East. Facebook investigators found these groups posted advertisements for domestic workers as a front for selling women off as slaves or sex workers. The WSJ found that Facebook does remove some of these pages, but it has yet to design a system that stops offenders from reposting under a new account.
