European regulators have teamed with the Federal Trade Commission in probing Apple's policies for mobile software developers, The Post has learned.

In June, the FTC opened an investigation into Apple's decision to ban developers from using other companies' tools to develop software for its mobile devices. Apple also shut out Adobe's Flash video technology from its iPhone and iPad.

According to a source, the European Commission recently joined the FTC probe into whether Apple's business practices harm competition.

The investigation could last another four to six months, the source said.

The European Union recently adopted a new Digital Agenda aimed at encouraging the interoperability of technology.

Apple has maintained that its policies, including its ban on Adobe's Flash technology, is within its rights and is necessary to maintain the quality of its applications.

Apple, the European Commission and the FTC declined comment.
