US considering Apple antitrust probe - report

United States Department of Justice and state attorney generals are looking into whether Apple Inc. has breached antitrust regulation, Politico reported on Wednesday.

Apple's App Store and its rules are reportedly in the focus of the possible probe, with the DoJ and AGs investigating claims that the tech giant applies its rules inconsistently. According to Politico's sources, Apple may be making it harder for apps to compete with its own products, leading to higher prices and fewer choices for consumers.

The report comes only a week after the European Commission opened formal antitrust investigations into Apple.
