Valve made a similar statement earlier this year when the court was asking for records in regards to stats recording some of the profits made from Steam games within certain dates. When I brought it up that it could be showing that Valve is hiding something, some Anons defended the act stating that it was probably deemed as "irrelevant information" for tax purposes. Then, surprise surprise, Valve announces the move to New Zealand a couple months later.
From hearing about how the actual court case is going, Apple is going to win it, no question. However, despite they're victory, the judge may end up ruling that Apple has to allow developers the ability to list alternate platforms for in-app purchases. As of this moment, all iOS games manage in-app purchases exclusively through Apple, and you cannot list alternate sites or platforms where those same purchases can be made. You can still make purchases on said alternate platforms, and have the effects of these purchases carry over to your iOS version of the game, but developers cannot mention that this is an option per Apple's ToS.
AFAIK, that may be the only change as a result of this case. But, remember, Epic may appeal this, so the changes could become more extensive as time rolls on.
