Apple has filed an appeal against Epic Games seeking to overturn a court order that allows developers to add links to third-party services to their payment applications. Apple is asking for a delay in the entry into force of the ruling, which effectively allows developers to bypass App Store fees of up to 30%, according to filings filed Friday in court. And in this case, the appeal process may take several years.
On September 10, federal judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers ruled in Apple’s favor on nine out of ten counts in a case initiated by Epic Games. Despite the fact that the Cupertinians took it as a “huge victory”, the company lost on one point. Apple was obliged to make changes to the App Store rules by December 9, which would allow developers to add links to payment methods in applications bypassing the store. It is noteworthy that some developers have already begun to make appropriate changes to their games and applications.
The statement says that the changes to the App Store rules will harm users, developers and the iOS platform itself. Smart restrictions are needed to protect Apple and its customers, according to company representatives, otherwise it will jeopardize their security and privacy.
