EU watchdog may probe Apple over claims of anti-competitive behavior

The European Union's competition watchdog is mulling plans to probe Apple Inc. over claims that it used the App Store to favor its own services over its rivals', Reuters reported March 14, citing EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager.

Vestager reportedly told German newspaper Tagesspiegel that the watchdog would seek to "examine the role of Apple and Apple's app store" to conclude whether "they have a market-dominating position, then the case would be comparable to our proceedings against" Google LLC.

The news comes after Spotify Technology SA filed an anti-competition complaint against Apple with the European Commission.

In 2017, Alphabet Inc. unit Google was fined €2.42 billion by the European Commission for abusing its dominant position in the search engine market.
