A class of iOS developers is suing Apple for charging the developers on the App Store with fees and commissions that are swallowing their profits.

Pure Sweat Basketball Inc. and Donald R. Cameron, a California-based app developer, filed a lawsuit against Apple for its anti-competitive practices on App Store, including a commission rate at 30 percent, an annual developer fee of $99 and minimum pricing for apps. As we all know, Apple only allows the iOS system to operate on Apple's products, including iPhones and iPads, thus making Apple is the sole distribution point for iOS apps.

Apple is being sued

Apple is facing a charge to be violating the federal antitrust laws and unfair competition laws of California. The accusation from the developers' group attempts to free iOS app makers the abusive monopoly of this company from unfair distribution on iOS apps and other related products from the company.

Law firm Hagens Berman filed the lawsuit to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California on Tuesday, seeking class status for the case. Previously, the law firm in charge of this case won another claim against the technology giant company in 2016 on behalf of the e-books purchasers.
