The fight between Epic Games and the two mobile giants Apple and Google is full of interesting details, such as the attempt by the company led by Tim Sweeney to create a real anti-Apple coalition, in order to force the Cupertino house. to change the policies adopted on the App Store.
The indiscretion comes through a report from the The Information, from which we learn how Epic Games has planned every single move of the media case that has blown up (we remind you that Fortnite has been removed from the App Store and Play Store following Epic's voluntary violation of the terms of service), coming to contact – already for several weeks, so before the ban – other companies in order to form a common front against Apple.
However, it seems that Epic has found no supporters; even Spotify – for some time at loggerheads with Apple – limited itself to issuing a statement in which it supports the struggle undertaken by the software house, not going beyond a simple moral support, since it seems to have not accepted the idea of joining the aforementioned coalition.
While the principles supported by Epic may be correct, it seems that no one wants to engage in a face-to-face confrontation with Apple, preferring to seek less drastic solutions, private agreements or through the judgment of a legislator. While Epic is looking for its first allies, Apple has issued an ultimatum to the company: it still has 10 days to retrace its steps, before the infringement of the App Store policies costs it its own developer account.
