Apple recently filed its final legal filing in the pending Apple v Epic lawsuit in the 9th Circuit US Court of Appeals.
The Cupertino-based company claims that Epic lost its first trial because of “unfounded” and “unprecedented” allegations of anticompetitive products and not because of a legal issue.
Apple says the order would require them to make changes to the App Store to allow developers to use third-party payment platforms.
In addition, it is alleged that Epic had no evidence that it experienced anti-steering devices or injuries from the move. Because Epic had not provided evidence, it had no right to sue under the California Unfair Competition Law.
Apple adds that Epic Games no longer meets legal requirements because it is not an iOS developer and therefore may not be affected by guidelines that apply to the group.
