Day 1 of Epic Games vs. Apple sees an opening skirmish, with the court line being hijacked by children.

The trial of Apple v. Epic Games offers a highly redacted look within the industry.

As you might expect, day one was very much about setting the scene, with lawyers for both Apple and Epic taking turns to give their opening statements, laying out the arguments they hope to make in favor of their respective positions.

Epic Games trial against Apple over Fortnite, the App Store, iOS, and everything in between got underway yesterday. Thus begins what will be iMore’s daily round-up of all the previous day’s happenings as the trial progresses, starting right now.

In attendance was Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers (obviously), lead counsel for both Apple and Epic Games, and Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney, who was first to take the stand. Apple fellow Phil Schiller was also in attendance and is expected to sit through the trial in its entirety.

The trial got off to a bumpy start when the court’s listen-in line (which is open to the public) was hijacked by hundreds of people asking the judge to bring back Fortnite on mobile. The line was supposed to be listen-only, so it sounds like someone got their conference call settings wrong:
