A trial between Epic Games and Apple began on 4 May 2021 with Epic Games calling the charge imposed by Apple are extortionate and that Apple’s control over the App Store is anti-competitive.
It believes that developers should be able to make apps for smartphones without having to pay large sums to Apple (and to Google for Google Play purchases).
Events giving rise to the trial began in August last year when Epic Games’ Fortnite implemented its own in-app payment – bypassing Apple’s 30% charges. Apple removed Epic Games off the App Store.
Apple is estimated to have made hundreds of millions of dollars from Fortnite alone in charges.
