The Digital Markets Act (DMA) legislation targets the market clout of top technology companies. Apple is planning to challenge the EU’s decision to put its App Store into the bloc’s new digital antitrust list. Apple has until Nov. 16 to file challenges at the EU’s General Court.
The EU Commission designated 22 services of major tech firms as “gatekeepers” of online services, requiring them to inter-operate their messaging apps with rivals and let users decide which apps to pre-install on their devices.
Alphabet’s Google Search,Apple’s Safari, Amazon Marketplace, Bytedance’s TikTok and Meta Platforms, and Facebook are all affected. Apple will still be required to comply with the rules from March during the appeal process. The company will change the App Store based on the new regulations.
