That depends upon who you ask. Jack explains:
The New York Times has a lengthy expose-like article on Apple’s App Store and how it works. Or, how it worked. Apple made some changes that help to diminish the criticism of being a monopoly by being the only place you can buy apps for iPhone and iPad.
I love the animation. The end result?
Other than the Apple Music vs. Spotify issue, this is much ado about not much. A monopoly is not illegal. Monopoly abuse is. Apple seemed intent on pushing free apps rather than commercial apps. That isn’t illegal, either, but it is stupid.
