Apple Says Epic Wants It To Be More Like Android But Refuses To Be So

Apple’s big legal spat with Epic is now into its second day and we’re still digesting what came out of the first one.

The lawsuit is expected to go on for a number of weeks before there is any kind of conclusion, but the first day saw Apple’s lawyers accuse Epic of wanting it to be more like Android which Apple of course, is not willing to be.

Speaking to District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers, Apple lawyer Karen Dunn said that “Epic wants us to be Android, but we don’t want to be,” when talking about the ability to sideload apps onto an iPhone and iPad.

Dunn then went on to point out that Apple’s customers don’t want iOS to be like Android as well, although that might be a contentious statement given the state of Twitter right now.

The whole argument revolves around Epic’s stance that it should be able to bring Fortnite to iPhone and iPad gamers while using its own payment processor rather than the App Store. That’s something that’s possible on Android with the Epic Store acting as its own app store, just for Epic games.

None of that is possible on iOS, and Epic says that’s a problem. Although it seems more of a problem for Epic than for users, if you listen to Apple’s lawyers. Now we see what tidbits come out of today’s day in court.
