Epic announced that Apple’s “Sign in with Apple” login system will not be allowed to Epic Games accounts as soon as September 11, 2020.
Apple will no longer allow users to sign into Epic Games accounts using “Sign In with Apple” as soon as September 11, 2020. If you used “Sign In with Apple”, please make sure your email and password are up to date. https://t.co/4XZX5g0eaf— Epic Games Store (@EpicGames) September 9, 2020
Epic says if you have previously used “Sign in with Apple”, you need to update your Epic Games account’s email address and password immediately to retain access after September 11, 2020. The company created a guide to help users to update their email address and password.
Last week, Epic said in a legal filling that iOS is the biggest platform for Fortnite with 116 million registered users, a third of the total Fortnite registered users. For good reason, the company tries not to lose the users who use “Sign in with Apple”.
Last week, Epic Games said that it filed a motion to request an injunction, and asked the court to stop Apple’s ‘retaliation’ and allow to restore Fortnite in the App Store . Epic said, “This was a clear warning to any other developer that would dare challenge Apple’s monopolies: follow our rules or we will cut you off from a billion iOS consumers—challenge us and we will destroy your business.”
A few days later, Apple filed a countersuit against Fortnite creator over violating its contract and avoiding paying millions in fees. ‘’Although Epic portrays itself as a modern corporate Robin Hood, in reality it is a multi-billion dollar enterprise that simply wants to pay nothing for the tremendous value it derives from the App Store,” says Apple in its suit.
