Apple’s and Epic games CEO to testify their part in Fortnite App Store trial. The company said it plans to call its CEO, Tim Cook, software head Craig Federighi, and fellow Phil Schiller, and employees who help combat fraud, manage payment processing and build developer tools for iPhone apps. The company also added they plan to produce all of them in person.
Apple’s made a statement that the senior executives look forward to sharing the positive impact the App Store has had on innovation, economies across the world and the customer experience over the last 12 years. The company is also confident that the company will prove that Epic purposefully breached its agreement solely to increase its revenues, which is what resulted in its removal.
The two massive companies one manufactures iPhone; the other makes popular games in the world are fighting in courts and public over how app stores work on smartphones. They also fight against each other regarding the revenue each company gains. Epic’s Tim Sweeney said that Apple’s forces the developers to use its payment processing systems. The company charges a commission of up to 30% on all those new character costumes. Both Apple’s and Google swiftly removed Fortnite from their stores, and Epic responded with lawsuits that argued both companies were abusing their market power.
