Apple, whose key business segments were the target of several antitrust investigations in the European Union, rejected allegations of dominance in the market, saying that it competes with Google, Samsung and other companies. This was stated at a speech at the Forum Europe conference by Daniel Matray, head of the Apple App Store and Apple Media Services.
“We compete with a wide variety of companies, such as Google, Samsung, Huawei, Vivo, LG, Lenovo and many others. In fact Apple does not occupy a dominant position in any market, and we are faced with strong competition in all categories – in tablets, wearable devices, desktop computers and laptops, cards, music, payments, messaging and much more“Said Mr. Matrei.
Recall that this month the European Commission launched several investigations to find out if Apple competition rules. The antitrust authority is currently studying the activities of the digital content store. The app Store and payment system Apple Pay.
During the speech, Matrei noted that the same rules apply to large and small developers, and 85% of applications do not have to pay a commission of 30%, since this applies only to products that use the Apple Pay branded payment service.
