Apple and Consumers

From BigTechWiki
Jump to navigationJump to search
  • To use its App Store, Apple only allows payment through its own payment method and doesn’t allow developers to contact consumers, to tell them about lower prices, or offer competitive pricing. This has led people to call them a monopoly in a classic sense.[1]
  • The iPhone is vulnerable to hacks and the public has been misled about its security.
  • The App Store is also vulnerable to scam and ripoff apps. The review process has been called “feeble” and since 2012 Apple has known that the App Store was a “playground for illicit transactions.”
