Apple stores raided by French Authorities
The BBC has reported that French competition authorities raided several Apple stores and distributors last week.
A spokesman for the French commission would not say why it carried out the inspections, but Apple was recently accused of favouring its own stores with supplies of new devices.
Earlier this year failed French firm, eBizcuss, took legal action claiming Apple had limited the supply of phones.
According to a report in French newspaper, Les Echos, eBizcuss also complained to the French competition regulator.
When contacted Apple said it was not commenting on the raids or the reason behind them.
