Epic Games’ legal battle against Apple has been long and difficult, with Apple coming victorious and Epic needing to pay 6 million USD. Despite the case, Epic Games attempted to bring Fortnite back onto iOS but Apple has blacklisted the game.

The process will run until all the course appeals have been exhausted, which can take up to 5 years. This also means Apple will take a loss since the company takes 30% of all transactions and Fortnite made around $700 million from iOS over 2 years and without that platform that source of income is now gone. Apple may suffer but not as much as Epic Games.

Many see this as Apple making an example of Epic Games and since Apple is a private company they reserve the right to refuse service.
