Apple and Epic have been in a legal battle since August when the maker of the popular game launched its own in-app payment system to circumvent Apple's monopolistic practices. App Store requires developers to use Apple's payment system and pay a 30% commission.

Apple on Tuesday filed counterclaims against "Fortnite" creator Epic Games asking for lost fees and seeking an order to stop the game maker from operating its own in-app payment system.
