In a newly filed appeal against the Epic Games ruling, Apple says that it won't let Fortnite back on the App Store because it is "clear that Epic has no intention of complying with Apple's guidelines."
Just as was expected by everyone, Epic Games has now appealed a ruling which saw it lose nine of 10 counts in its legal argument with Apple. That appeal will now likely keep lawyers and journalists busy for a few more months at least.
Despite a ruling that states it must change App Store guidelines to allow developers to direct customers beyond their apps to different payment methods, Apple's General Counsel Kate Adams has hailed Friday's court ruling as a "resounding victory."
Exactly one year ago today, Epic Games kicked off its App Store war against Apple by adding a direct payment system to Fortnite on iOS devices. The move saw the game kicked off the App Store, the debut of a spoof 'Nineteen Eighty Fortnite video', and a massive lawsuit against both Apple and Google.
