The European Commission has joined the FTC in probing Apple’s iOS developer policies, according to a new report. Citing an anonymous source, the New York Post reports that the European body is investigating whether Apple’s decision to bar iOS developers from using other companies’ tools to developer software is harming competition. Also at issue is Apple’s decision to ban Adobe’s Flash technology from its iOS devices. According to the report, the investigation could last another four to six months. [via Mac Rumors]
