    no, it doesn't remove their controll at all, it simly allows them to forcably buy their way into every media content store that is created hence force. Epic just sold the keys of the kingdom to apple for 26m so they can push one piece of software. This is going to be REALLY bad for everyone else. epic doesn't give a @#$@# about anyone but themselves. As a game developer / business major you are deluded to how antitrust works

    Security is important but if we buy a product, we should be allowed to install whatever we want at our own risk. If I install an app or a game from a store that's not the App Store and my phone gets hacked, its my problem. That´s why we check those infinite texts agreements when we install something on a computer, those that tells you that if something happens, the company isn't responsible. Im ok with that, just let me install what I want. We should be allowed to install whatever we want. This is like this because its Apple and its BS.

    What gets me is why Nintendo, Microsoft, Valve, Sony, Google Stadia and many 3rd were dragged into the legal battle with Epic Games and Apple. It's not their fight it's between Epic Games and Apple's fight. XCloud isn't on Apple's devices because Microsoft and Apple are competitors with each other and Microsoft knows it. Epic Games might as well had all gamers put on the witness stand. If you game on Apple products to begin with you're pathetic.

    If Microsoft, Google and Epic Games have such a problem with Apple, why don’t they make something to compete with it? Oh wait they do, it’s just not formidable enough. In the end, Apple is a business with business interests like making money. Apple definitely isn’t perfect and clearly has big troublesome agendas but what company doesn’t? Why don’t all these companies put their money where their mouth is and make more compelling products to bring down the Apple ecosystem and make app developers more happy rather than complaining about how evil Apple is in court?

      Nothing cool about a monopoly. If you own the device, the way you get apps on the device, and the payment options that can be used, developers have no leverage or control to change anything. Apple has been over the line for a while now, so I’m glad epic sued, regardless of the result.

    I remember that some 15 years ago MS was forced in EU to offer competing default browsers in Windows during set-up. Well Apple is far, far worse for not allowing even to set up 3rd Party apps as default (with 2 exceptions, browser and email) let alone freely download those or suggest alternatives to quite a few Apple default apps (music, TV, Maps to name a few).
