A U.S Appeals Court has revived a 2012 lawsuit brought by number iPhone owners against Apple. The suit alleges that Apple has created an illegal monopoly by only allowing customers to install software purchased from the company's own App Store on their iPhones.
It seems odd to claim that the App Store has kept prices too high when many apps, if not most, are available for free, or for the low price of $0.99.
The case, , is for the U.S. District Court for Northern California. Should the case succeed, the plaintiff's aim either to compel Apple to pay damages or to allow customers to purchase and download apps from outside of the App Store, with the latter option requiring work on Apple's part to allow iOS to run non-App Store third-party software out of the box.
