Therefore, complaints that Apple is using its market position to establish terms that are unfair or that control competition and choice – which can cause loss to customers when purchasing and using apps – should be carefully investigated.
Andrea Gocelli, director of the UK Market Monitoring Commission, insisted. Apple did not miss the answer:
We believe in a prosperous and competitive market where all the best ideas can grow. The App Store has been the engine of success for app developers because of the strict and equally applicable standards. It is the responsibility of every developer to protect customers from malware and to prevent extensive data collection without their permission. We look forward to working with the UK Competition and Market Authority to explain to them how the App Store has become a trusted marketplace for consumers and developers through our privacy, security and content policies.

The Arizona State House of Representatives passed a law this week banning Apple and Google and all other app stores with more than a million downloads, allowing developers in the state to create more demanding apps to use only their app stores.
The law also covers users living in the state, but it is not yet clear what impact this will have on companies based in other states but selling in Arizona. It is now being submitted to the state Senate for approval.
In Europe, Apple faces two inquiries as to whether it has breached competition rules, one related to its App Store policy.
