Apple's legal battles over its competition practices in many parts of the world keep piling up. In early 2019, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that iPhone users were entitled to file a lawsuit against Apple due to the 30% revenue cut from purchases made on the App Store
Today, a new class action suit was filed against the tech giant for allegedly making exorbitant charges on approximately 20 million consumers in the UK. The lawsuit claims that the App Store's 30% tax was "excessive" for consumers and calls for at least £1.5 million in compensation. Under the class action suit, any iPhone or iPad user in the country who purchased apps and subscriptions as well as those who made in-app purchases through the App Store since 2015 can claim compensation.
Apple has been slapped with a £1.5 million class action lawsuit in London for allegedly making excessive charges upon consumers who purchased apps and subscriptions via the App Store since 2015.
