Well, on the one hand, the Judge ruled that Apple must allow alternative payment methods for in-app purchases, but on the other hand, she refused to rule that the Apple was wrong to delist Epic for including an alternative payment method in the Fornite app. This is the bit that is confusing and doesn't quite make sense.

Pretty simple logic:

Apple doesnt force you to buy iphone = apple is not monopolistic.

Positive for consumers and developers.
Apple and Epic lost in my book.

To be honest we need international market laws to everything electronics hardware and software and all need to fallow the rules. Being based in one country by it's laws is making problems.

Epics game got what they basically wanted and for other apps it is better also. And i would say apple lost in this one cause now they need to allow alternative in-app payment methods so they wont get there cut from the pie anymore

Not in American politics. Their courts would never ruled such judgment!

Apple is America and no judge would ruled a case against the company, perhaps outside America and it won't holds water
