Apple faces Epic Games in court


After months of hype and warring words, Epic Games is finally getting its day in court with Apple.

The trial began on Monday - and is one of the most important in Apple's history.

Apple boss Tim Cook will be giving evidence, the first time he's given testimony at a trial.

At stake is the future of the App Store and the amount it charges developers - a wildly lucrative money spinner for the company.

The trial got off to a slightly chaotic start. The public hearing failed at first to mute those who were listening in via phone call, meaning calls from fans for the return of Fortnite to mobiles were accidentally broadcast.

The storm began in August last year, when Epic Games laid a trap for Apple.
