The Supreme Court agreed to decide whether Apple must face a lawsuit by consumers who allege the App Store’s pricing model violates antitrust laws. The battle focuses on Apple’s app store business model, which calls for a 70-30 revenue split with developers. In a complaint filed in 2011, a group of iPhone users alleged that Apple’s 30% commission from developers got passed on to consumers and that the company was able to charge the markup because it wielded monopoly power over the distribution of iPhone apps. U.S. District Court Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers, in the North District of California, dismissed the lawsuit in 2014, ruling that developers were the ones affected by the 30% commission.
