Back in the U.S., the Supreme Court ruled Monday that consumers can sue Apple for exercising a monopoly over the apps market. The court, however, did not determine whether or not Apple does in fact have a monopoly on the market, and a class-action lawsuit will likely now move ahead in lower courts. Apple charges a 30% sales commission to app developers while excluding them from making sales outside its “App Store.” Meanwhile, Apple has its own set of competing services like Apple News+ and an upcoming streaming service. Justice Brett Kavanaugh joined the liberal justices in their 5-4 ruling.
