It’s Epic’s second setback in its lawsuit alleging that Apple runs its mobile app store as an illegal monopoly because developers are barred from making their iPhone and iPad apps available through their own websites. Instead, Apple allows downloads and payments only through its App Store, and it takes 30% of the purchase price. The case is headed for trial next year.
