However, as illustrated in the case of "Parler", Amazon, Google and Apple worked together to eliminate this source of competition. Considering that Apple and Google (Android) between control a significant majority of the smart phone market, any demonstration that they act together to further their common interests is especially worrying.
Had they done so, that would be illegal in many countries and in the EU. But there is no evidence, no smoking gun, that they did this.

However they didnít have to collude, they only had to watch what the others were doing. If they liked what they saw, they did the same thing. Google (Android) started, then Apple matched and a couple days later Amazon did their thing. Exactly the same as petrol/gas stations, supermarkets and airlines do.
