"Epic vs Apple" has finally arrived and as Tim Sweeney now famously said we're in for some "fireworks"!

On day four of the trial, Apple finally feels the spotlight of the witness stand as Apple App Store VP Matthew Fischer is asked about everything App Store, from guidelines to Apple's (lack of) studies on consumer spending. Oh, and Roblox somehow gets involved.

It's grilled Apple time (Yum!)...in Virtual Legality.
