JOHANNESBURG - Apple is in a showdown with its customers as iPhone users want to sue the company for monopolising the Apple app store.
Users are complaining that Apple is blocking them from purchasing software from third-party marketplaces.
This inflates prices at the app store, as Apple takes a 30% commission on all sales.
Apple has argued that its customers cannot sue it as they're not its direct purchasers.
The Supreme Court is expected to issue a ruling by late June on whether or not iPhone owners can bring forward such a case.
An anti-trust lawsuit could open Apple up to further litigation from consumers.
This could affect other companies like Google and Amazon, who also operate their own app markets.
