Epic claims Apple blocked Epic Games Store launch

They stated that their software submissions for the Epic Games Store were twice denied by Apple

Epic claimed that a small detail in the design of some buttons and labels was the cause of the rejection

The continuing discussion about Apple’s stringent control over the iOS app market is heightened by this charge

Apple declared that the Epic Games Store app has been cleared for use on iPhones and iPads in Europe precisely one day after Epic made public claims

Apple may still be reluctant to permit a legitimate rival to operate within the iOS ecosystem and compete with its App Store

Epic strongly disagrees with this approach, claiming that it unfairly stifles competition and drives up consumer costs

The Epic Games Store’s functionality and reach on iOS devices may still be restricted by Apple
