Live Correspondent: Apple is under investigation by the German competition watchdog. The Federal Cartel Office (FCO) said the initial investigation will look at whether the company is of "paramount significance across markets".

Apple said it looked forward to "having an open dialogue" with the FCO about any of its concerns.

Facebook, Amazon, and Google have faced similar probes this year after a new German competition law enabled early action against large digital firms.

In a statement, Andreas Mundt, President of the FCO, said it would examine whether with iOS Apple had created "a digital ecosystem around its iPhone that extends across several markets".

He added that a focus of the investigation would be the App Store.
