  1. DOJ blames Apple for lack of Super Apps like WeChat in US

The US Department of Justice has filed an antitrust lawsuit against Apple, accusing the tech giant of stifling the creation of Super Apps, such as WeChat, in the US. The lawsuit argues that Apple's policies have prevented the development of super apps, which provide multiple functions or mini-apps all in one, making it easier for users to switch between devices and platforms. The DOJ believes that super apps would benefit consumers by reducing dependence on the iPhone and creating a more homogeneous experience across platforms.

  1. Samsung Is Reportedly Working on a Super App for Mobile Banking

Samsung is considering launching a Super App for mobile banking in South Korea, in collaboration with leading commercial banks, to expand its presence in the financial market. The super app, based on Samsung's Monimo app, would offer various financial services within the app itself, eliminating the need for users to install multiple apps. Samsung is seeking to join hands with commercial banks to enhance its presence in the financial sector, as it is barred from owning a bank in its hometown. The super app would face competition from existing banking apps like Shinhan Super SOL, KB Star Banking, and Hana One Q.
