Apple might delay changes to its most controversial App Store policy
The first act in the high-profile Epic Games vs. Apple lawsuit came to a close in mid-September, but the fight is far from over. Epic did not get the big iPhone App Store changes it sought, though the company has already appealed the decision. Epic did win one of the 10 counts that could have massive consequences on how digital app stores operate. The judge in the case said that Apple must allow developers to include some sort of link to an alternate payment option.
Apple is yet to detail how it might implement the changes, but some developers have already started creating solutions for third-party in-app purchase mechanisms. The big caveat is they still don’t know how Apple will modify the App Store rules to allow apps to link to alternative payment options. And Apple just signaled that it’s not looking to provide that sort of support anytime soon. Despite labeling the verdict in the Epic trial as a “huge win,” Apple is now appealing the ruling.
