Apple denies all DOJ antitrust lawsuit claims.

Apple denied using anticompetitive practices to keep customers inside its "walled garden" and denied ever blocking competitors' apps and services in response to the antitrust complaint brought against it by the Department of Justice.

Reiterating its earlier stance that the litigation would impede its capacity to develop the products and applications that propelled it to the position of most valuable firm in the world, the corporation denied the agency's assertions in remarks communicated with Apple Insider.

The Department of Justice claimed that Apple was engaging in illegal software app monopolization by making iOS less compatible with cutting-edge apps and cloud streaming services. However, the business asserted that it safeguards customer privacy and security by selectively limiting the APIs that app developers can use

 Its rationale for imposing restrictions on digital wallets developed by parties other than itself is identical. Also, the business reiterated that it has never removed "super apps" from its services, noting that iOS customers still have access to Facebook, WeChat, and Line. It also made it clear that the App Store has always been open to game streaming providers.

Apple responded to claims that its watch's superior iPhone integration is anticompetitive by saying that it would be impossible to provide universal support for smartwatches without considering every operating system and model. 

Crucially, regardless of the reason (such as iMessage's incompatibility with Android), Apple has rejected claims that it is preventing customers from migrating to other products. Reportedly, it stated that users may move data easily from iPhone to Android smartphones, implying that customers might not be defecting to its rivals due to their genuine love for its goods.

In a previous statement, Apple expressed concern that the case, if proven valid, might "set a dangerous precedent, empowering government to take a heavy hand in designing people's technology." 

The organization promised to "vigorously defend against it." "Apple undermines apps, products, and services that would otherwise make users less reliant on the iPhone" and "discouraging innovation" threatens Apple's monopoly by strangling innovation, according to US Attorney General Merrick Garland's press statement.
