How stupid do you think people are?
When you announce a new software feature, that does not mean that it is ready. Sometimes when developing software things arrive that were not foreseen and major structural changes need to be done. All these armchair commenters about how such and such is late have never developed software or hardware. Software at this level, near perfect up time over millions of instances is not hard, its near impossible, and the slightest hitch in the system will be laughed all over the net, I for one am pleased that when things are hard the delay them until they are ready, rather than deliver a lesser experience.
At least they have delivered, some companies announce flashy new stuff then realise that they are shooting for the moon and quietly don't ever say anything more.

I imagine they'll focus on Apple because that's where they can get the most publicity.
The did sue Google as well https://appleinsider.com/articles/20/08/14/google-follows-apples-lead-boots-fortnite-from-play-store

That is not how it works, radar detectors are not allowed but using the GPS to warn the user in the proximity of a radar is allowed (voir le site coyote (https://www.moncoyote.com/fr/)).

Look at the mess that is Android.
Nobody has any business telling Apple how to run their app store. If anybody doesn't like it, then go use something else. Nobody ever forced anybody to be in the Apple eco system. Don't come to Apple with your braindead ideas and demand them to change.
I don't think anyone on this thread is suggesting how Apple run THEIR app store. The suggestion is that it should not be the ONLY app store (or only way to legitimately load an app).
The problem is that third party app stores would immediately allow side loading pirated apps, and the main app store would lose its main interest for developers of paid apps.
