Apple vs Epic: Unreal Engine is saved, but Fortnite isn’t coming back to iOS for now


Lawyers representing Apple and Epic Games appeared before a judge via Zoom on Monday to settle the first big showdown of their lawsuit: Epic’s temporary restraining order against Apple, which has plans to revoke Epic’s developer account and remove the Unreal Engine from its platforms in addition to Fortnite. Epic is arguing it would be “irreparably harmed” if Fortnite was removed and its developer account was terminated on August 28, because the lawsuit proper won’t be heard in court until April of 2021. 

The results are in, and they’re mixed for Epic Games: US district judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers has granted a temporary restraining order forbidding Apple from removing Epic’s Apple developer accounts, or denying Unreal Engine updates on Apple operating systems.
