Apple vs Cydia, the alternative app store takes the Apple to court

Cydia is an alternative app store for jailbroken iPhones, which allows you to download applications for Apple’s smartphone without going through the App Store. And without having to use its payment systems. The first version of this app store dates back to 2008, even before the birth of the official Apple store.

The developer of Cydia Jay Frreeman (known online as Saurik) had already filed a lawsuit in 2020. The accusation is that Apple uses a “monopoly power” that deprives alternative app stores of the “ability to compete”. But Judge Gonzalez Rogers dismissed the case for theprescription occurred.

Freema then attempted a second proceeding accusing Apple of having implemented practices “more aggressivedal 2018 al 2021 to avoid that the alternative app stores were even “usable”. This new charge is more recent and therefore not prescriptive.

The judge then dismissed Apple’s filing request, saying the case must go to court. Gonzalez Rogers is the same judge as decided the case Epic vs Applethe most sensational of the trials filed around the world against Apple and Google for the App Store issue.

The monopoly allegations have found legal support in When and in South Korea in the last year. And the Digital Markets Act that theEuropean Union is expected to adopt from next year limit this control by the Silicon Valley giants. But the American situation remains to be assessed, both in court and in parliament.

We will keep you updated on the matter.
