Apple Appeals $2 Billion EU Antitrust Fine Over App Store Restrictions

Apple Music’s student plan is getting more costly

Apple has challenged a 1.84 billion euro ($2 billion) fine imposed by EU antitrust regulators for restricting Spotify and other streaming rivals on its App Store, according to a court filing. 

The fine, issued by the European Commission in March, marks Apple’s first penalty for infringing EU antitrust rules and is the third largest ever imposed for anti-competitive behavior.

Apple had already announced its intention to appeal the decision. The case will be heard by Europe’s second-highest court, the Luxembourg-based General Court, but a ruling could take several years. 

Additionally, an appeal against the General Court’s judgment to the Court of Justice of the European Union, Europe’s highest court, could prolong the litigation even further.
