The European Union will soon accuse Apple of anti-competitive practices

At the heart of the investigation is Apple’s imposition of its own payment system for apps delivered through the App Store and a halt to a sales commission.

The investigation stems from an earlier Spotify complaint, which said Apple Music is advantageous because it doesn’t have to pay a sales commission, just like other music services. At the time, Spotify accused Apple of being a player and arbiter of the music streaming market, which affected the competition.

Meanwhile, the EU has advanced the Digital Markets Act, which says such practices are illegal. Apple and other companies have two more years until the DMA enters into force to bring their practices into line.
