Apple has responded to the United States’s lawsuit against the company, saying that it is wrong on the facts and that they will defend themselves against it.

“We believe this lawsuit is wrong on the facts and the law, and we will vigorously defend against it,” Apple said in a statement, according to CNN.

A blockbuster antitrust lawsuit against Apple has been filed by the US Justice Department. In a recent string of Big Tech companies to face monopoly accusations from the US government, it’s the latest but largest.

The American government is cracking down on the massive industry whose power has gone largely unchecked over the past several decades.

After years of allegations by critics that Apple has harmed competition with restrictive app store terms, this long-anticipated lawsuit comes.

“Apple undermines apps, products, and services that would otherwise make users less reliant on the iPhone,” the Justice Department said in a press release. “Apple exercises its monopoly power to extract more money from consumers, developers, content creators, artists, publishers, small businesses, and merchants, among others.”

For instance, iPhone customers are directed by Apple to send high-quality photos and videos seamlessly to one another, however, multimedia texts to Android phones are slower and grainy.
