MarketWatch reported that Apple Mac computers, iPhones, iPads, iPods and Apple TVs could be subject to a temporary exclusion order, according to a complaint from two companies: Aqua Connect and Strategic Technology Partners. The two entities lodged their complaint Oct. 10, but it was not clear exactly which Apple devices would be targeted by the commission’s probe.

Apple shares slipped 1.5% to close at 171.34 Tuesday.
