Apple company states that the in relations with the Spotify music streaming service it simply follows the same rules as with other companies. However, according to Apple, Spotify wants to be treated as a company that offers free apps, while earning money through Apple’s App Store. The iPhone maker is responding to a complaint that Spotify filed with the European Commission.

Spotify claimed in that complaint to be opposed by Apple. For example, the American company would disapprove app updates and actively block Spotify from Apple services and platforms. According to Apple, Spotify is free to build apps for its platforms.

The amount that the music streaming service pays to Apple is, according to Apple, also fair because the American company distributes the apps, controls and arranges the payment. Moreover, according to Apple, Spotify pays comparable percentages to telecom providers who give their customers a discount on the service.
