France's finance ministry is investigating contract terms between Apple and local carriers selling the iPhone, according to reports. The initiative is believed to be part of a broader look at contracts between carriers and phone makers. It's separate, however, from a European Commission investigation into Apple's contract dealings.

The probe is also distinct from two antitrust investigations being conducted by France's Autorite de la Concurrence. One is concerned about whether Apple is treating resellers fairly; earlier this year, regulators raided Apple's offices for documentary evidence. The other is concerned with the mobile app market, and could see antitrust charges brought against individual companies like Apple or Google, and/or the institution of new industry-wide policies.
