Apple not dominant in any market, plenty of rivals, senior executive says

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - IPhone maker Apple <AAPL.O>, the target of EU antitrust investigations into key segments of its business, on Tuesday rejected accusations of market dominance, saying it competes with Google <GOOGL.O>, Samsung <005930.KS> and other rivals. "We compete with a wide variety of companies, Google, Samsung, Huawei [HWT.UL], Vivo, LG <066570.KS>, Lenovo <0992.HK> and many more," Daniel Matray, head of Apple's App Store and Apple Media Services, told a Forum Europe online event. "In fact, Apple does not have a dominant position in any market, and we face strong competition in every category, in tablets, wearables, desktop and notebook computers, maps, music, payments, messaging, and more," he said. Matray defended Apple's App Store, saying the same rules apply to all developers, large and small, with 85% of apps not required to pay a 30% fee to the company which is only valid for those which use its in-app payment service.
