Apple and Epic Game's battle over legal issues is still going on as Apple has recently made a move against Epic for allegedly breaching its contract with the iOS App Store. Apple made some counterclaims on Tuesday, accusing Epic for threatening Apple’s relationship with its customers and its iOS ecosystem, hence causing ''significant harm'' to the company.
Apple's counterclaims came after Epic sued the company for removing its popular game Fortnite from the App Store over in-app payment issues. Epic's complaint stated that Apple has violated the antitrust law as its used its control over iOS to extract a commission for all software that passes through the App Store.
In Apple's Tuesday filing, the company defended its policy, mentioning that for all the actions it undertook, there were legitimate business justifications. Apple further stressed that all its actions were ''undertaken in good faith'', and therefore its conduct was reasonable.
Epic has yet to respond to Apple's filing, which is due by 18 September, followed by an expected full hearing on 28 September.
