The afternoon of yesterday, now Spanish, has been one of the busiest in recent years in terms of controversies related to the guidelines of the App Store. Apple, and shortly after Google, has removed the Fortnite game from its app stores, leaving, according to Epic Games, more than a billion users unable to play Fortnite.
Spotify invited the European Union to investigate the App Store’s antimopoly practices. Shortly after, Rakuten and Telegram joined. Epic Games has set a trap for Apple, a trap it has fallen into. But this is not an overnight thing, everything was prepared, even the video that he has published on his social networks, a video that can also be seen in an area of the Fortnite map.
As expected, Spotify has sided with Epic Games. Spotify applauds the company’s decision to shed more light on Apple’s abuse of its platform.
We applaud Epic Games’ decision to take a stand against Apple and shed more light on Apple’s abuse of its dominant position. Apple’s unfair practices have put competitors at a disadvantage and deprived consumers for far too long.
The stakes for consumers and app developers, large and small, could not be higher, and ensuring that the iOS platform operates competitively and fairly is an urgent task with far-reaching implications.
Epic Games claims there is a way back. In fact, he has filed a complaint against Apple in a California court, with the sole purpose of Apple change its policy, without seeking any type of financial compensation.
On August 27, the current Fortnite season ends. All players who enjoy this game from an iOS device, they will be able to continue playing but will not be able to access the battle pass, as the company has signed in the statement
