Tim Cook to Testify In Epic Games’ Antitrust Lawsuit Against Apple

Apple CEO Tim Cook will be the star witness on Friday in an antitrust lawsuit filed by the company that made the popular video game Fortnite.

Epic Games filed the lawsuit last year after Apple dropped Fortnite from its app store.

Apple removed the game after it says Epic created its own digital payment system, something Apple doesn’t allow.

Cook’s testimony will likely set the tone for Apple’s fight against future antitrust pressure it’s facing.

This case could have big impacts for companies like Spotify and Match Group who also accuse Apple of being anticompetitive.
