The judge rejected Apple’s application for stay of stay after the Epic trial

Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers rejected Apple’s request for a moratorium, which required it to allow app developers to link to non-Apple payment options. The company has 90 days to comply with the verdict.

As part of the Epic v Apple case that went to court this year, Apple was found to have violated California’s unfair competition laws. A permanent injunction was announced, “Apple Inc. […] Developers are hereby permanently restricted and prohibited from (i) in addition to in-app purchases, in their apps and their metadata buttons, external links, or other call-to-actions to add actions that lead customers to purchase mechanisms, and (ii) and Register a point of contact voluntarily obtained from the customer through the account in the app. “
