Apple Barred From Forcing Japanese Carriers To Sell iPhones At A Subsidized Price

Posted by at 6:09 am on July 12, 2018

Japanese regulators reportedly have told Apple that the company could be violating anti-trust regulations in the country. The Japan Fair Trade Commission (FTC) said that Apple’s sales contracts force Japan’s three largest wireless providers to sell iPhone models to consumers at a discount through the use of subsidies. But the FTC says that this deal prevents the Japanese carriers from offering lower priced monthly data plans to consumers.

As a result, Apple has been forced to change the wording of the sales contracts it has with the aforementioned trio of Japanese carriers. Japan is the second largest market for the iPhone in Asia after China.
