This ongoing conflict stems from Apple’s initial rejection of Epic’s marketplace app, which was later reversed after public criticism from Epic Games’ chief executive, Tim Sweeney, who called the situation “absurd.”

The controversy began when Apple rejected Epic’s marketplace app, only to later approve it after Epic’s public outcry.

According to some reports, this approval is only temporary. Apple is allegedly requiring Epic to make changes in a future update due to concerns that some of the in-app buttons closely resemble the design of Apple’s own store, potentially confusing users. Mainly the “install” and “in-app purchase” buttons.
