Apple v Epic: Tim Cook takes the stand in Epic legal row
Epic Games/EPA. Apple boss Tim Cook is taking the witness stand for the first time in his company's major legal battle with Epic Games over an alleged monopoly. Epic, maker of the hit video game Fortnite, claims Apple's tight control over iPhone apps hurts competition. Epic has made no secret of the fact that it would like to run its own app stores on both iOS and Android, avoiding Apple's and Google's payment and delivery systems entirely. The legal cases against Apple and Google are separate, and Apple has been the first in court. Apple had highlighted that Epic's store hosted a store-within-a-store - Itch.io - which sells adult content.
