The funds have already been transferred to the budget of the Russian Federation

It should be reminded that in July 2022, the Authority recognized the company as violating antimonopoly legislation. Apple imposed on Russian developers of iOS applications the need to use the company’s payment tool in their applications.

For example, the App Store Rules prohibited iOS app developers from informing customers inside the app about the possibility of paying for purchases outside the App Store, as well as using alternative payment methods. The company required developers to delete links to their Internet resources and change the functionality of the application so that the registration form does not lead to external sites. Otherwise, the company would not allow applications in the App Store.

As a result of the conducted administrative investigation, FAS Russia fined Apple in the amount of 1 177 988 700 rubles for violating antimonopoly legislation.

On January 19, 2024, Apple paid the fine. The funds were transferred to the budget of the Russian Federation.
