Apple Wins Motion to Put On Hold App Store Changes

  • Apple was granted a motion to put on hold a decision forcing the company to change its “anti-steering” rules within the App Store.
  • The motion gives Apple an additional 90 days before it would need to make any changes related to “anti-steering” rules within the App Store.
  • Apple is now appealing the Supreme Court of the United States, asking the ruling body to look over the ongoing case and the subsequent appeals.

Apple has been granted a motion to put on hold a decision forcing the company to change its “anti-steering” rules within the App Store, giving Apple a bit more time to move forward with an appeal. This motion gives Apple an additional 90 days before it would need to make any changes related to the rules and Apple is now appealing the Supreme Court of the United States, asking the ruling body to look over the ongoing case and the subsequent appeals.

This all started in 2020 after Epic Games updated its ridiculously popular battle royale game, to allow players to avoid Apple’s payment system entirely and pay Epic Games directly. This avoided Apple’s digital storefront tax and Apple subsequently pulled the game from the App Store. Epic Games refused and filed a lawsuit against Apple the same day they updated the game. The original ruling regarding Apple’s anti-steering rules was handed down in September 2021 and Apple has consistently come out on top with their rulings. If the Supreme Court decides to hear the case, it could result in major changes to Apple’s digital storefront.
