All About Epic Games vs Apple Trial Set:
The case will be considered as a bench trial, where no panel of jury will be available and will begin from 3 May 2021. However, the court needs to determine whether the hearing of Epic Games vs Apple Trial Set will be held in person or virtually because of the latest pandemic.
