Epic Games has launched legal proceedings against Apple Australia

Ahead of its May 2021 trial in the United States, Epic Games has launched legal proceedings against Apple’s Australian business. The motivation is the same as what prompted Epic’s action in the US: that Apple’s iOS App Store is anti-competitive. 

Specifically, it prevents app developers from using “competing payment processing systems,” which could theoretically be used to curtail Apple’s 30 percent commission on each iOS in-app transaction. When Epic Games famously tried to circumvent Apple’s own payment processing systems in Fortnite, Apple responded by removing the app entirely.
