Apple ‘Deleted’ Rivals’ Music from iPods, Court Hears



(BBC) – Users with non-iTunes music received a message telling them to restore devices to their factory settings when they tried to sync them, the court heard.

Apple said that the move was a legitimate security measure.

The competition case is examining whether Apple tried to lock down its iPod and iTunes market in 2007-09.

Apple’s security director Augustin Farrugia said the company’s attempt to keep iPods clear of any non-iTunes music was done to protect consumers from hackers and malicious content.
