Spotify accused Apple of non-competitive behavior over the release of a single subscription to its Apple One services.

If the company is not stopped, the developer community will suffer irreparable damage, according to Spotify.

Music service Spotify said Apple, which launched a single subscription package for its Apple One services, has abused its dominant market position. About it writes The Verge.

The company told the publication that Apple is abusing its dominant position in the market and behaving unfairly towards competitors, prompting customers to choose their products.

“We ask antitrust authorities to promptly suppress Apple’s anti-competitive behavior. If this does not happen, the developer community will suffer irreparable damage, and universal freedom to listen, learn, create, communicate – will be jeopardized, “- said in Spotify.

Apple can of course actively promote its package offer, so a situation in which someone will choose Apple Music over Spotify looks vaguely plausible, The Verge notes.

Apple believes that users still have the ability to “discover and enjoy alternatives,” the newspaper said.

  • September 15, 2020 Apple presented a single subscription to their Apple One services. It will include Apple Music, Apple TV, Apple Arcade, Apple News and other services at a fixed price.
  • Spotify has already complained about Apple to regulators. In March 2019 service applied to the European Commission, in part due to the fact that Apple did not allow Siri and HomePod to launch Spotify. In June 2020, the European Commission start investigation due to 30% commission in the App Store on a complaint from Spotify and Rakuten.
  • In June 2019, the number of Apple Music subscribers exceeded 60 million, June 2020 on Spotify were over 138 million subscribers.
