The Dutch regulator fines Apple 5 million euros

Dutch antitrust regulators fined Apple 5 million euros today for failing to comply with a rule to open up the App Store to allow Dutch dating app providers to use alternative payments Way. Apple said on January 15 that it had complied with an order issued by the Authority for Consumer and Markets (ACM) in December 2021, but the regulator said today that Apple has not complied.

ACM said in a statement: "Apple has failed to meet the requirements on several fronts. On top of that, Apple has failed to adjust conditions so that dating app providers remain unable to use other payment systems."

 Reuters noted that Apple is appealing the ACM's December 2021 ruling. ACM said it informed Apple of the decision, and it faces a weekly fine of 5 million to 50 million euros until it complies.
