India's Competition Commission to order probe against Apple

Monday 3 January 2022 16:09 CET | News

The anti-trust regulator Competition Commission of India has announced a probe against American tech Apple over power abuse allegations. 

According to the Commission, the American company has abused its dominant position by imposing commissions as high as 30% for in-app purchases without allowing additional payment methods.

Given that the App Store is the only source of downloading apps on iPhones and iPads, Apple controls a significant volume of payments processed through its platform. Moreover, the company’s in-house apps represent a direct competition to third-party apps on the iOS platform and the 30% commission could affect the competitiveness of the market.
