Apple accused of clamping down on apps competing with Screen Time

Apple accused of clamping down on apps competing with Screen Time 1

Some of those apps had more advanced features, such as support for managing Android devices and blocking websites in browsers besides Safari. The Times also understood that developers received only brief notes demanding changes, with no reasoning or detail to help them modify their apps or explain why their apps were at risk of disappearing. Effectively, companies had to change their business models with little warning.

Apple’s Tammy Levine said in a statement that the company treats “all apps the same, including those that compete with our own services.” She added that Apple’s goal was to create an ecosystem that offered access to “as many quality apps as possible,” and dismissed the notion that Apple’s apparent crack down was connected to the introduction of Screen Time.

That statement isn’t likely to satisfy critics. Spotify filed an EU complaint accusing Apple of mutliple anti-competitive practices, including limiting services that challenge with its in-house music service. You can’t currently use Siri to control Spotify, for instance. There’s also a long-running perception that Apple muscles into the territory of third-party apps, intentionally or otherwise — the term “Sherlocked” refers to those times when Apple introduces a feature that renders an app largely irrelevant. Screen time management developers clearly feel they’re under similar pressure, and might be reluctant to back down.
