Today, Hagens Berman and Sperling & Slater filed a landmark complaint against Apple alleging anti-competitive monopolisation of the US Tap and Pay iOS Mobile Wallet market (Apple Pay). The case, led by Affinity Credit Union, alleges that Apple created artificial barriers around the use of the NFC (near-field communication) technologies built into their phones, forestalling the emergence of competition and allowing Apple to dictate terms to banks and consumers.
