Apple rebuffs Epic request to restore Fortnite developer account in South Korea

(Reuters) -Apple rejected on Thursday a request by “Fortnite” creator Epic Games to restore its account on the iPhone maker’s iOS platform in South Korea to add its own payment option, in their latest tussle over app development fees. Apple is battling a lawsuit filed last year by Epic Games, alleging that the smartphone maker has abused its dominance in the market for mobile apps. Their battle pivoted to South Korea last week when its parliament approved a bill that bans major app store operators, including Apple, from forcing software developers to use their payment systems, effectively stopping them from charging commission on in-app purchases.
