Russia investigating Apple for unfair competition

The world’s most valued company, Apple Inc is under investigation in Russia following a complaint from cybersecurity company Kaspersky Lab.

Russia’s anti-monopoly watchdog said Apple was abusing its dominant position in smartphone apps.

Russia’s  Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) who is conducting the investigation asked why a new version of Kaspersky Lab’s Safe Kids application had not been updated on the Apple operating system.

The failure of over upgradation resulted in significant loss in functionality for the application.

Kaspersky said Apple released an updated version of its own app, Screen Time, which had similar functions to the Kaspersky’s application.
