Judge puts Epic’s App Store win against Apple on hold

Epic Games landed a good shot on Apple in September: Most of the ruling in the Epic v Apple case went Apple’s way, but the court also declared that Apple requiring iOS developers to use its built-in payment processing system was in violation of California’s Unfair Competition Law. As a result, Apple was given 90 days to enable third-party payment processors on the App Store.

Epic quickly appealed the ruling, and Apple did too, although not before taking a little time to blacklist Epic by refusing to restore its developer account until all appeals are exhausted and the judgment in the matter “becomes final and nonappealable.” Epic CEO Tim Sweeney said after the ruling that the appeals process could take five years to fully wind out.
