Splitting the decision was wise of the judge on this. Epic Games can be stopped from doing what they did wrong, but should not be stopped from other areas where they did not act. I wonder if Apple’s play to threaten the development tool access was intentional to force the middle ground? Or perhaps I’m overthinking it.

Epic Games on Monday won in part a temporary restraining order that bars Apple from blocking Epic Games access to key development tools, though the gaming company failed to bring Fortnite back to the App Store.
