Apple will be the subject of an anti-competition investigation by the European Union according to a report by the Financial Times. The investigation will focus on allegations by music-streaming platform, Spotify, who filed a complaint with the EU in March. According to the company, Apple -- which offers its own music streaming service called Apple Music -- has unfairly used the popularity of its platform to put Spotify and other companies like it at a disadvantage. This includes it's operating system, iOS, and the App Store. Spotify says Apple puts companies at a disadvantage by leveraging its App Store and iOS to lock companies out and charge them lofty fees.
