Known for playing Fortnite, Epic lost its first lawsuit with Apple – the iPhone maker was accused of anti-competitive practices, manifested in the ban on application developers from using third-party payment services for in-game transactions and high commission fees. Epic appealed the September court decision.

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

Apple has repeatedly argued that the App Store’s strict policies ensure user 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.
