Proposed class action lawsuit accuses Apple of monopolizing cloud storage for its devices

A class action complaint has been filed against tech giant Apple in a northern California court, accusing the company of creating unfair conditions to dominate the cloud storage market. The proposed class, represented by Hagens Berman, would cover tens of millions of US customers.

The complaint alleges that Apple has placed technological restraints on files that other cloud providers can host, giving iCloud a competitive advantage. iPhone and iPad users are only allowed to store certain types of files with non-Apple cloud providers, while iCloud has permission to host app data and device settings.

This has led to accusations that Apple charges higher fees due to iCloud’s dominance, leaving users with limited options. The complaint argues that Apple’s restrictions are arbitrary and stifle competition in the cloud storage market.

The lawsuit highlights the issue of tech giants using their market power to limit consumer choice and drive up prices. As the case moves forward in court, it will be important to see how Apple responds to these allegations and whether any changes will be made to its cloud storage policies.
