Urban Tech Story | Japan warns Apple and Google App Store of alleged monopoly

Japan’s antitrust watchdog, the Fair Trade Commission, said on Thursday that Apple and Google may have violated Japan’s antitrust laws in their handling of mobile apps, recommending further regulation to curb antitrust practices by the two tech platforms. The Fair Trade Commission found that Apple and Google are a duopoly in the mobile operating system market, with Apple’s iOS having a 46.6 percent share and Google’s Android having a 53.4 percent share, and both companies dominating the app store market. The Fair Trade Commission recommends that Apple and Google make changes to allow third-party app stores or third-party payment systems.
