Known for playing Fortnite, Epic lost the first lawsuit with Apple – the iPhone manufacturer was accused of anti-competitive practices, which are expressed in the prohibition of application developers from using third-party payment services for in-game transactions and too high commission fees. Epic has filed an appeal against the September ruling.

“Apple’s approved process for reviewing and approving products available in the App Store improves safety and security, and provides these applications with greater legitimacy in the eyes of users”, — said in Roblox. Previously, one of Apple’s top managers described the Roblox project as an “experience”, and the developers of the platform liked this term – they even changed the description on their website, putting “experience” instead of the word “games” and stating that the company works with the metaverse.

Apple has repeatedly argued that the App Store’s strict policies ensure users’ privacy and security. The day before, this argument was also supported by 2 former directors of the CIA and 21 former employees of the American NSA. An appeal hearing is scheduled for next year.
