Spotify says Apple is using its App Store approval process as “a
weapon.” Apple says that claim is a load of BS.
In a letter sent to Spotify general counsel Horacio Gutierrez on
Friday, Apple general counsel Bruce Sewell rebutted the streaming
music service’s June 26 allegations that Apple is “causing grave
harm to Spotify and its customers” by rejecting a recent update to
Spotify’s iOS app. “We find it troubling that you are asking for
exemptions to the rules we apply to all developers and are
publicly resorting to rumors and half-truths about our service,”
Sewell wrote in a letter obtained by BuzzFeed News.
