Apple has been charged with abusing its dominant position in the music-streaming market by imposing restrictive rules on the App Store, in a landmark move by European Union regulators.

The charges follow a 2019 complaint from music streaming platform Spotify, and carry a maximum penalty of up to 10% of Apple’s global annual turnover — what could amount to a multibillion-dollar fine.

This is the first time Apple AAPL, -0.07% has faced antitrust charges in the 27-member bloc, and the action represents one of a number of regulatory pressures on Apple globally that could lead to a change in the technology giant’s business model.
