    US gets a voice in Epic battle with Apple

    SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) – The United States (US) Justice Department wants to have its say on Apple’s antitrust tussle with Epic Games, which is due to be heard on appeal next month – a year after a Californian court ruled largely in favour of the iPhone maker.

    On Friday, the appeals court granted the department the right to send a representative to the hearing scheduled for October 21, where both sides are expected to make their case again.

    In 2021 a California judge ruled against Fortnite-maker Epic, which had accused Apple of acting like a monopoly in its shop for digital goods or services.

    But the judge also barred Apple from prohibiting developers from including in their apps “external links or other calls to action that direct customers to purchasing mechanisms”.

    Apple can still mandate that its payment systems is used for in-app transactions.

    Both sides are appealing.
