The United States Department of Justice is continuing with its antitrust investigation into Apple and has recently reached out to developers who create apps for Apple’s iOS devices, reports Reuters . Suren Ramasubbu, CEO of app development company Mobicip, was interviewed by a U.S. investigator in November and questioned about Mobicip’s interactions with Apple. Mobicip makes parental control software that parents can use to monitor and control what their children are doing online, similar to Screen Time. The app was temporarily removed last year for a failure to meet App Store requirements put in place by Apple, which is why its CEO was contacted. A “handful” of developers are said to have been in touch with the Justice Department. Apple declined to comment on the news of the interview with Mobicip’s CEO, but highlighted a statement on its website that says that Apple expects apps to adhere to a “high standard for privacy, security, and content.” Apple, along with Facebook, Google, and Amazon, is facing a government query into whether the way it operates stifles competition.
