Epic points out that if Apple is competing with Google, it’s not doing so identically.

“Apple has not adopted a flat 15 percent fee for all subscriptions across the board starting in year one, yes?” asks Epic’s attorney, pointing out how Apple didn’t quite join Google in doing so.

“Google was going to charge 15 percent for subscription transactions starting in year one of the subscription... Apple still has not adopted that policy itself, has it?”

Apple’s Oliver had to agree. He also agreed it sounded correct that Google didn’t implement a subscription discount policy until a year and a half after Apple, a point that Epic has continually attempted to drive home during this trial, as evidence the companies didn’t feel competitive pressure from each other.
