It’s Past Time to Scrutinize Apple’s Anticompetitive Conduct

Congressional Investigations are Necessary following Restriction of Beeper Mini

Dec 20, 2023

Today NextGen Competition joined over a dozen civil society partners in demanding accountability for Apple’s ban on Beeper Mini. For far too long, the company has used unfair tactics to insulate its walled garden from competition. This has come at an enormous cost to consumers. Apple’s refusal to allow secure messaging between iOS and Android puts consumers’ sensitive data at risk and disadvantages those who use an alternative, often more affordable hardware. The letter to Senators Klobuchar and Durbin calls for an investigation into Apple's attempts to squash efforts to streamline messaging between Apple and Android devices.
