According to foreign media reports, Apple warned in a letter this Tuesday that antitrust bills would increase the risk of security breaches to iPhone users.
The bill would prevent companies with dominant app stores, like Apple and Google, from conditioning distribution of an app on whether the developer uses the platform’s in-app payment system, for example.
Timothy Powderly, Apple’s senior director of government aff-airs said during an interview, ″The bills put consumers in harm’s way because of the real risk of privacy and security breaches. ”
In the past few years, Apple has drawn consistent scrutiny from regulators over its control of the App Store, which is the only way to install software on an iPhone. Apple takes a cut of between 15% and 30% on digital purchases made through iPhone apps.
Apple is an American multinational technology company special-izing in consumer electronics, computer software and online services. Apple is the largest revenue information technology company and has become the world's most valuable company since January 2021.
On the ranking of “The 2nd Daguan·Keweiwei World Brand Value Top 900" released on January 13, 2022, Apple’s brand value was 2097.599 billion RMB, ranking the 1st.
