Spotify: Accuses Apple of unfair competition

Spotify sent a statement reiterating its distrust and frustration with Apple, again accusing the company of anti-competitive practices.

"Once again, Apple is using its dominance and unfair practices to disadvantage competitors and deprive consumers of its services."

The music platform did not specify what happened at the Apple event and provoked this response, although there is a track that stands out as a possible candidate. The announced Apple One package includes Apple Arcade, TV +, access iCloud and - what probably bothered Spotify - Music, for $ 15 a month. This is a potential threat to the platform, which also works one application music at iOS.

"We urge competition authorities to take urgent action to curb Apple's anti-competitive behavior, which, if left unchecked, could cause irreparable harm to the developer community and threaten the to be heard, learned, cultivated and connected our collective freedoms. "

For more than a year, Spotify has been pushing the issue of Apple's uncontrollable power in the App Store and in March 2019 it submitted complaint against her, in European Commission, while claiming that Apple's practice of getting 30% of an application's revenue is unjustified. He even emphasizes that Apple operates as a monopoly on iOS.
