- House Democrats released a 449-page report on Tuesday based on the results of an investigation into whether Amazon, Facebook, Google, and Apple are engaging in anticompetitive practices.
- In regards to Apple, much of the report focuses on accusations from developers saying that the tech giant’s App Store policies and rules make it difficult to compete in the marketplace.
- The report cites conversations with app developers and Apple’s former director of App Store review among other resources.
- Apple has refuted the accusations and conclusions made in the report, saying it doesn’t hold a monopoly and its rules are designed to enforce safety and trust in the App Store.
- Still, the report suggests that the long-running issues developers have taken with Apple’s policies are far from being resolved.
