Apple must allow other forms of in-app purchase options judge rules in Epic Games vs Apple trial

It has been a few months since the trial between Epic Games and Apple wound down. Now, the judge leading the trial has made an initial ruling. And it's a big win for Epic (and Fortnite).

Judge Yvonne Gonzalez-Rogers has filed a permanent injunction against Apple, with the ruling arriving early on Friday morning. This applies some major pressure to Apple, and it's a giant setback for Apple's App Store rules moving forward.

‘Crossy Road’ is hopping its way over to Apple Arcade

Despite the fact Apple Arcade now has over 200 games in its library, there's still room for more. One of the biggest boons to the monthly subscription service was the adoption of classic titles.

And maybe now we'll see that all over again.

The side-scrolling action game ‘Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls’ is heading to Apple Arcade

Apple Arcade initially launched with the promise that the gaming service would host around 100 titles. That has changed quite a bit since the service's debut, though, with Apple Arcade now offering more than 200 games in its rotating roster. And it looks like another title is heading to the service at some point in the future, welcoming one of the most beloved franchises to the service whenever it happens.
