The collection includes (Apple Music), (Apple TV Plus), (Apple Arcade), (Apple News Plus), and (iCloud) storage service, and Apple gives customers different options to combine its various services into the (Apple One) collection.
Spotify said: We call on competition authorities to act urgently to restrict Apple’s anti-competition behavior, which could cause irreparable harm to the developer community and threaten our collective freedoms of listening, learning, creativity and communication if left unchecked.

She added, “We offer (Apple One) because it represents customer value and a simple way to access the full range of Apple subscription services. We recommend the plan that provides you with the most money based on the subscriptions you have, and it is ideal for anyone who loves any of our services and wants to get more at a cost. Less, and certain services are also available listed on (Apple One) to enjoy on non-Apple devices. ”

It is reported that Apple, the most valuable company in the world, is currently under attack from the company (Epic Games), the developer of Fortnite, in a legal battle.
But (Epic Games) was not the first to accuse Apple of abusing monopoly power, as it was preceded by Spotify, whose complaint helped launch official investigations in the European Union against Apple and its practices.
