The verdict is in; Apple’s app store doesn’t constitute an illegal monopoly, but they can’t stop developers like Epic Games from directing their users to make purchases outside of the official app store.
I think that anybody who treats this like a loss for Apple is overreacting. It’s a mixed outcome, but I’d call it a win for Apple overall since they avoided being named as an illegal monopoly. Exactly how big a deal it is, though, will be determined by how many developers actually follow through and send consumers elsewhere for payments.
I don’t expect this decision to be where Apple’s focus is coming up. Instead, they have wearables and services on offer, and I think that everything they introduce is the best it’s ever been.
In spite of this, the overall market is still uncertain. I can show you exactly which stocks to buy to give yourself the best chances even under these conditions. All you have to do is click here to check it out.
