Apple is reportedly being investigated by the European Union over anti-competitive practices in relation to its iPhone range of devices. According to the Financial Times, The European Commission has sent out a nine-page questionnaire to various telecommunications firms in Europe and has begun the preliminary proceedings of the investigation.




The telecommunications companies must return the questionnaire by June 17. Their answers will be used to decide whether a full investigation is warranted. If the companies admit that Apple was favored over rivals, Apple could face significant fines.


Apple could also be in trouble if they disable features of the product within the EU area because this breaches EU law. Such issues include blocking access to 4G networks in Europe.


Apple maintains that it has done nothing wrong.
