Apple's Tim Cook Praises Huawei, An Institution Of Chinese Espionage

The news that both companies have met with lawmakers comes the day before Apple CEO Tim Cook is due to testify in front of the antitrust panel of the House Judiciary Committee, alongside the CEOs of Amazon, Google, and Facebook.

"As much as we believe the iPhone provides the best user experience, we know it is far from the only choice available to consumers", Cook's testimony reads.

Airbnb experienced similar demands from Apple after it began an "online experiences" business that offered virtual cooking classes, meditation sessions and drag-queen shows, augmenting the in-person experiences it started selling in 2016, according to two people familiar with the issues. "Because we care so deeply about privacy and security and quality, we do look at every at every app before it goes on but those rules apply evenly to everyone". In its second-quarter earnings in April, Cook reported an "all-time record" for the amount of revenue generated by Apple's services division, which increased to $13.3 billion from $11.5 billion a year previously.

Apps including Prime Video, Altice One and Canal+ are all given preferential App Store rates for purchases as long as the apps have direct integration into Apple services such as Siri or its AirPlay 2 wireless speaker technology.

He says that for the "vast majority" of apps on the App Store, developers keep 100% of the money they make. Clearly, if Apple is a gatekeeper, what we have done is open the gate wider. He cited Google, Samsung Electronics Co and LG Electronics Inc as examples of competitors in the smartphone market.

"That is not correct", Mr Cook said. "And they are vastly reduce than the 50 to 70% that computer software developers compensated to distribute their get the job done right before we introduced the Application Store". "Brick-and-mortar stores charged high fees and had limited reach".

"In the more than a decade since the App Store debuted, we have never raised the commission or added a single fee". Cook will remind the hearing that Apple lets developer sets the price of their apps and does not charge anything for just being listed in the store.
