Apple may soon face a federal antitrust lawsuit, according to a report from The New York Times. The US Department of Justice is investigating Apple’s efforts to keep customers locked into its ecosystem. The investigation is looking at how Apple blocks rivals from using iMessage and how the Apple Watch works better with the iPhone compared to other brands. They are also examining how Apple prevents other financial providers from using iPhone-specific payment services. The investigation is still under review, and Apple is meeting with the DOJ to defend its practices. The DOJ could file the lawsuit against Apple in the first half of 2024. The Verge reached out to Apple for a comment but didn’t hear back.
