The French antitrust regulator may in the coming weeks send Apple a so—called statement of objections – a list of concerns that the privacy policy on iOS has caused it. This is reported by Axios sources.

The regulator and Apple declined to comment on Axios information sources.

Recall that in 2020, four French advertising organizations filed an antitrust lawsuit against Apple, which then only announced plans to change its privacy policy. They pointed out that under the new rules, Apple requires application developers to ask the user’s permission to collect personal data, while the corporation itself can still track all data. According to the organizations, this violates EU laws.

In 2021, the regulator stated that it did not see any abuses on the part of Apple, but it plans to continue investigating the situation.
