Apple and Google duopoly
The CMA said the tech giants have a 'vice-like grip' on mobile use
The Competition and Markets Authority’s (CMA) interim report into mobile ecosystems has suggested users are losing out because of Apple and Google’s duopoly. The probe was launched following concerns the tech giants have too much control over operating systems, app stores and web browsers. CMA chief executive, Andrea Coscelli, said Apple and Google have “a vice-like grip” use of mobiles. He said: “Any intervention must tackle the firms’ substantial market power… We think that the best way to do this is through the Digital Markets Unit when it receives powers”.
