The relationship with the gaming industry has always been complicated, but this month this relationship has fallen into a fierce and open legal and regulatory war that may affect the future of iPhone apps.
The first upgrade occurred when Apple clearly stated why it did not plan to approve the cloud gaming services of its technology rivals Google and Microsoft.
The second time was when Apple’s creator Epic Games broke the rules and updated it and caused Apple to launch the popular Battle Royale Fortnite on the App Store.
Google removed the Play store for Apple:
After Google removed Fortnite from its Play Store, the company sued Google on similar grounds. However, as Epic imitated in the unprecedented video, it mimics Apple’s iconic “1984” Macintosh ad and the main goal here is Apple and its long-standing and often controversial iOS application management ecosystem.
An amazing animation work:
This is an amazing animation work because it uses Apple’s original weak role in the personal computing industry in the 1980s and Orwell’s theme of state control, treating Apple as the ultimate villain, its growth and greed make it a well dressed enemy. The accusation was just about forty years ago.
As far as Apple is concerned, either abandoning Fortnite or banning cloud gaming services may make gamers doubt Apple’s control of the App Store and the company’s promise to bring the best games to mobile devices and keep them there.
Profitable gaming crazes:
Apple is one of the most profitable gaming crazes in the past decade and has served as a gatekeeper. Now, it has removed from its store one of the most popular mobile games of all time, which is played by children and teenagers around the world.
At the same time, Apple clearly and purposefully excluded cloud gaming platforms that can bring games that require a dedicated console or PC to the same player’s mobile phone-by using the screen and network connection of the iPhone or iPad as a conduit, Cloud gaming server.
