JAILBREAK NEWS: CYDIA Creator Saurik SUES Apple Over App Store Monopoly | What Does It Mean For Us?


In today’s video, we’re talking about the latest news in the iOS Jailbreak community. Cydia’s creator, saurik, is suing Apple over monopolistic App Store policies. Jay Freeman, the father of iOS Jailbreaking and Cydia, is joining a stack of lawsuits piling against Apple Inc. over monopolistic behavior and antitrust alleged violations.

Jay Freeman, also known as saurik, the developer behind Cydia package manager on jailbroken iOS devices is not alone in this. A few months ago, Epic Games (yes, Fortnite), has also sued Apple over the same policies after the game has been taken down from the App Store making players lose entire seasons worth of gameplay over a mere payment method. Apple wants its cut from all sales and Epic seems to think otherwise. App distribution on iOS is deeply regulated by Apple, unlike on Android where anybody installs whatever they please from anywhere they want. This is what saurik and Epic, amongst others, are fighting for.
