App Developers Sue Apple Alleging Anti-Competitive Behaviour – Report

The action comes amid similar legal disputes initiated by consumers and an antitrust investigation initiated by the Department of Justice.

Two app developers — Donald Cameron and Pure Sweat Basketball — filed a lawsuit against Apple in a California federal court, alleging that the Cupertino tech giant engages in anti-competitive practices.

The plaintiffs claim that limiting the purchase and download of apps to just the App Store stifles developers.

App Store demands 30% commissions on all app purchases plus a $99 yearly fee from devs just to qualify for on-platform software sales. Apple also artificially regulates minimum and maximum price points for apps, according to the lawsuit says.
