As promised, the iPhone company today has terminated Epic Game’s developer account, which does not include the Unreal Engine, complying with the court orders. The termination of the account means that other games and apps from Epic, including Battle Breakers and the Infinity Blade apps have also been removed from the App Store.

I don't know how you guys feel about this, but I feel like Apple is handling itself like the monopolist it is being accused of being. This may take a while, but I think eventually Apple will have to answer for this.

Epic vs. Apple

Epic wants Fortnite back on the App Store while it contends with Apple

Big quote: "To be clear, Epic does not seek to force Apple to provide distribution and processing services for free, nor does Epic seek to enjoy Apple’s services without paying for them. What Epic wants is the freedom not to use Apple’s App Store or IAP, and instead to use and offer competing services," says Epic in its preliminary injunction filing from Friday.
