Chinese app developers accuse Apple of ‘monopolistic behavior

Twenty-eight Chinese app developers have reported Apple to the country’s antitrust regulators accusing the tech giant of monopolistic behavior, reports the Wall Street Journal.

The complaint says Apple charges excessive fees for in-app purchases, notes the WSJ. It also alleges Apple doesn’t give details on why apps are removed and puts local developers at a disadvantage by not responding to queries in Chinese.

A formal complaint has been filed with both the National Development and Reform Commission and the State Administration for Industry & Commerce.Apple told the WSJ that its guidelines are enforced equally in all countries, and that developers are free to request a review if they disagree with a decision.
