EU charges Apple in landmark App Store competition case

EU competition commissioner Margrethe Vestager formally accuses Apple of unfairly squeezing out music streaming rivals through its App Store in one of the biggest-ever competition cases to hit the iPhone maker. The European Commission's case, put forward in a "statement of objections", is based on a complaint brought by Sweden-based Spotify and others that accuses Apple of making unfair use of the App Store to promote its own Apple Music.
