Q&A with WhatsApp’s Will Cathcart



⭐ Epic appealed Friday’s ruling in its lawsuit against Apple. While the judge ruled that Apple has to let developers link to third-party payment systems, Epic lost on most of its claims. Here’s Kim Lyons at The Verge:

At trial, Epic argued Apple had a monopoly because of how it requires developers to use its payments system for in-game purchases. But Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers ruled Friday that Epic should pay damages to Apple for violating rules around its in-app purchasing system, while undoing Apple’s most restrictive rules on steering customers to alternate payment systems.
