The US is investigating alleged consumer fraud by Apple

Texas and several other American states are conducting a preliminary investigation into alleged consumer fraud by Apple, according to the portal “Axios” with reference to the Texas Attorney General’s office.

In a document dated March 27, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton writes that his office’s consumer protection division “initiated this investigation in order to ensure compliance with law and order … if the abuse is uncovered, the Department will initiate legal proceedings.”

It is not reported which abuses were the subject of the investigation. The document also does not specify which States, other than Texas, take part in the verification.

In June 2019, the US House of Representatives Judiciary Committee informed that it would begin checking compliance with antitrust laws in digital markets. Some American media reported that the antitrust investigation would also affect Apple.

Apple, founded in 1976, manufactures personal and tablet computers, audio players, phones, smartwatches, and software.
