The CEO of Apple took the stand to reject a lawsuit filed by Epic Games claiming the tech giant is abusing its position with its online marketplace and claiming outsized commissions.
Apple said the game developer broke the rules in the App Store for "violating" payment guidelines. One of the world's most popular video games is now under threat on Apple devices.
Apple had removed the game from its App Store after Epic Games allowed users to purchase in-App features directly, without giving Apple a cut. It means iPhone and iPad users were excluded from a new release this week.
