The legal dispute between Apple and Epic Games has revealed some of the Cupertino giant’s inner workings.
As it turned out, Apple once thought about releasing its messaging service iMessage on Android, but did not do it for reasons of competition.
In particular, in 2016, one of the former Apple employees said that the main reason keeping people from leaving the Apple ecosystem is iMessage. iMessage represents a serious blockage to the Apple ecosystem. Philip Schiller also said that bringing iMessage to Android would hurt Apple more than it would help.
Craig Federighi, who at Apple also opposed the launch of the app on Android, said that such a move would simply remove the obstacle that prevents iPhone parents from buying Android devices for their children.
In the context of Epic Games’ struggle with Apple, this data is useful, since it indirectly confirms the statements of the first that the Cupertino giant uses unfair business practices, but at the same time Apple does not violate any laws, so there is nothing to blame it for in this case.
By the way, Apple abandoned the idea of launching iMessage on Android back in 2013.
