EU hits Apple with 1.8 bn euro ($1.9 bn) antitrust fine


The EU has hit Apple with a 1.8-billion-euro fine ($1.9 billion) for violating the bloc's laws by preventing music streaming services from informing users about subscription options outside of its App Store. "Apple did so by restricting app developers' ability to inform users of Apple devices about alternative cheaper options to purchase music available on the internet outside of the Apple ecosystem," commission vice-president Margrethe Vestager says in a statement.
