(Reuters) -Apple Inc Chief Executive Tim Cook told an all-hands meeting of employees on Friday he planned to discuss U.S. immigration policy with U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas later in the day, according to a source familiar with the meeting.

According to a source, Cook informed employees during the meeting that an American court ruling in an antitrust lawsuit brought forward by Epic Games creator Fortnite resulted in Apple’s victory (NASDAQ:), in nine of the 10 counts.

Cook said that the ruling was not more than “a couple of sentences scraped out” from an agreement between Apple developers and Apple.

Cook also stated to employees that Apple intends to establish a physical storefront in India. Sources said that India is a large smartphone market but Apple’s iPhones are not as popular there as Android phones.
