The first trial in the Epic Games vs. Apple trial concluded a few days ago, with the verdict favoring Apple. Fortnite isn’t back on the iPhone, iPad, or Mac, and Epic has to pay Apple millions of dollars. But Epic did score a small win that could send ripples in the industry. The judge said Apple should allow apps like Fortnite to display an alternative to the default App Store in-app purchase (IAP) system. The language made it sound like Apple doesn’t have to allow third-party payments systems in iPhone apps. Rather, it’ll have to allow developers to link to a different payment option. And some developers, like Paddle, are already looking to compete against Apple’s in-app payment system with a solution of its own.
