Apple Inc. generated at least $100 million in revenue -- and possibly much more -- from Fortnite’s 30-month run on the App Store, according to testimony from the iPhone maker about its income from the business at the heart of an antitrust trial with Epic Games Inc.

The revenue figure was disclosed when Michael Schmid, an Apple employee in charge of App Store business development for games, was questioned on the witness stand Wednesday in federal court in Oakland, California.
