Apple was hit with a 10 million euro (£8.8m) fine while Samsung received a smaller bill of five million euros.

"Apple and Samsung implemented unfair commercial practices", the Italian competition authority said in a statement.

Software updates were said to have slowed the performance of older phones.

This "caused serious malfunctions and significantly reduced performance", which provoked users into upgrading their devices, the authority said.
