Apple decided to appeal Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers’ decision in the Epic Games case back in September and filed a notice of appeal in a California court. The iPhone maker does not want to allow developers to receive money in applications bypassing their payment system.
Apple plans to appeal the decision, which requires changes to the App Store rules to allow developers to add links to external sites in payment apps. While the appeal is pending, the company asked the court to suspend a permanent injunction, which requires it to make these changes by December.
The iPhone manufacturer claims that changes to the App Store policy could negatively impact users and their privacy. Apple says the suspension of the judgment will allow it to protect its platform while it tackles “complex and rapidly evolving legal, technological and economic issues that will entail any changes to this guidance.”
The injunction is due to take effect on December 9, but if Apple wins, it won’t have to make any changes. Judge Rogers will hear proposals from Apple’s lawyers on Nov.16. It is worth noting that this is the only point on which the iPhone maker lost to Epic Games.
