The "10 principles for the Microsoft Store on Windows" builds on ideas and the work of the Coalition for App Fairness, a group that demands a fair deal from Apple and Google LLC and aims to promote choice, ensure fairness and promote innovation on Windows 10.
"We are grateful that the Court recognized that Epic's actions were not in the best interests of its own customers and that any problems they may have encountered were of their own making when they breached their agreement", an Apple statement notes.

"You can also add a Smart Stack of widgets intelligently curated based on the apps you use most, and the right widget will show up automatically at the right time in your day", Apple says about the widgets.
This news comes nearly a month after Apple launched a new set of rules for its App Store in September. The complaint has been lodged in the US District Court for the Northern District of California, according to a report by Apple Insider.
"The report's findings may help Epic in building a factual record against Apple, since Epic will be able to draw from documents and analysis that were produced during the course of an extensive 15-month investigation", Perault said in an email. A lawsuit against Apple was filed the next day. And developers can also easily choose to distribute their apps on their own terms directly over the internet without restrictions.
