- Tim Cook sat down for a virtual interview with the Toronto Star.
- The CEO talked about the App Store's impact in Canada as well as the upcoming Epic Games trial.
Tim Cook thinks that, if Epic Games had its way, the App Store would become a cesspool of sleazy salesmen and door-to-door charlatans.
In an interview with the Toronto Star, the CEO talked about the effect that the App Store has had in Canada. He warned about the impact of the Epic Games lawsuit, saying that the App Store would become more like a flea market if app developers were able to bypass the company's payment system.
While Epic Games has claimed Apple as a monopoly, Cook also pushes back against that.
Cook believes that the company will prevail in the Epic Games lawsuit which is set to begin next month.
