European authorities examining how the Apple iPhone is being sold
Ironically, the growing popularity of the Samsung Galaxy S4 might hurt the EC's chances of starting a probe. Before a formal investigation takes place, the EC would have to show that Apple is dominant in the European market, something that is harder to do these days thanks to the Samsung Galaxy S4 and its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S III. The newer model sold over 10 million units globally in less than a month. Apple says that its contracts meet all EU laws.
