Justice Department Sues Apple, Claiming Illegal Monopoly Over Smartphones


The Justice Department and more than a dozen state attorneys general have sued Apple, claiming that the tech giant has an illegal monopoly over the smartphone market.

Attorney General Merrick Garland will appear at a press conference this morning to detail the lawsuit.

In a statement, per Reuters, he said that consumers “should not have to pay higher prices because companies violate the antitrust laws. If left unchallenged, Apple will only continue to strengthen the smartphone monopoly.”

The lawsuit is the latest Biden-era effort to curb the power of tech giants, as the DOJ and regulatory agencies also have sued Meta, Google and Amazon.

More to come.
