The authority said it fined Tech Data 76.1 million euros ($84.5 million) while Ingram Micro was fined 62.9 million euros ($69.8 million).
Accused of a host of anti-competitive behaviours, Apple has found itself on the end of the highest value penalty ever issued by the authority.
The French regulator said the Apple case was prompted by a complaint lodged by eBizcuss, an Apple premium reseller, in 2012.
Since her nomination as the head of the French competition authority in 2016, Isabelle de Silva has set her sights on USA tech companies, including Alphabet Inc's Google, which was fined 150 million euros ($167 million) for opaque advertising rules.
France's competition authority has imposed a record €1.1bn (£1bn; $1.2bn) fine on USA tech giant Apple for what it sees as anti-competitive practices.
It fined the tech giant for preventing distributors from differentiating offers and prices.
"Apple's distribution of products in France between Tech Data and Ingram Micro, in a way that "'sterilised' the wholesale market for Apple products, freezing market share and preventing competition between the various distribution channels".
The regulator alleged that Apple favoured certain wholesalers more than others, allocating them more stock when new products were launched, leaving others with insufficient stock to meet customer demand.
Apple also abused its Premium distributors by subjecting them to unfair commercial conditions compared to integrated distributors.
Apple said the French decision "will cause chaos for companies across all industries" and vowed to appeal. "It is also the heaviest sanction pronounced against an economic player, in this case Apple, whose extraordinary dimension has been duly taken into account". "The French Competition Authority's decision is disheartening", it said in a statement.
