Microsoft president's criticism of app stores puts pressure on Apple

微软总裁对应用商店的批评让苹果面临压力

Source: https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2020/jun/21/microsoft-presidents-criticism-of-app-stores-puts-pressure-on-apple

背景:苹果的应用商店长期以来因为其应用内购买系统及分成规则而备受诟病,并被业内人士直接讥讽为“苹果税”。自去年总部位于瑞典斯德歌尔摩的知名流媒体服务商Spotify向欧盟递交诉状,指控苹果影响公平竞争之后,欧盟于6月16日宣布正式发起针对App Store和App Pay的两项反垄断调查。消息一出,众多苹果应用开发者加入了抗议“苹果税”的阵营,指责苹果通过封闭的生态系统和守门人的支配地位索取高额的通行费,妨碍了市场的公平竞争,尤其限制了小型应用开发商的发展。声援抗议者的还有以往被反垄断的“常客”微软公司。微软总裁布拉德·史密斯表示,现在应用程序市场的所作所为早就超出了当年欧盟对IE浏览器利用Windows市场地位的指控。言外之意:你们早就该整治苹果了。
