Judge rejects Apple’s request to stay after Epic trial

Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers rejected Apple’s request to block an injunction ordering it to allow app developers to engage in non-Apple payment options. The company has 90 days from the date of judgment to comply.

As part of the Epic v Apple case brought in court this year, Apple found to be in violation of California’s Unfair Competition Act. A permanent injunction declared that “Apple Inc. […] Developers are hereby permanently restricted from (i) including their apps, metadata buttons, external links, or other calls to action that direct customers to purchasing mechanisms, as well as in-app purchase and (ii) communicate with customers through Contact points voluntarily obtained from customers through in-app account registration.
