Apple Inc’s Request to Delay App Store Order is rejected by Judge

The Index Today


During a hearing on Tuesday, Apple Inc.’s request to stay an order was rejected by U.S District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers. The order will enable developers to directly communicate with users in the aps regarding alternative payment methods.

A spokeswoman for the tech giant stated, “Apple believes no additional business changes should be required to take effect until all appeals in this case are resolved. We intend to ask the Ninth Circuit for a stay based on these circumstances.” The order will allow users to choose payment methods outside the app store when signing up for a service.

In September, Fortnight maker, Epic Games Inc brought forward an antitrust lawsuit against the tech corporation. According to Epic Games, Apple Inc prevents developers from providing their own payment systems on Apple devices and are charged fees in return. The trial mostly favored Apple Inc as Epic Games request to allow its software to be downloaded was rejected by the judge.

Apple Inc is currently working making changes to the App Store to enable other applications such as Netflix to become available to users. These changes come after the Japanese antitrust regulators agreed to settle an ongoing investigation. Lawyers or Epic Games have decided to appeal the verdict in the near future.
