- It still has to allow developers to tell users about external payment methods.
Apple has won a delay in complying with some of the App Store changes required by the ruling from the Epic v. Apple trial.
In a statement released earlier today, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has granted Apple a stay that will delay its requirement to implement certain changes to the App Store. While the company still has to allow developers to let users know that a payment option exists outside of the app, they have more time to fight the original order to make buttons and links to those websites available in apps.

In addition to covering breaking news, Joe also writes editorials and reviews for a range of products. He fell in love with Apple products when he got an iPod nano for Christmas almost twenty years ago. Despite being considered a "heavy" user, he has always preferred the consumer-focused products like the MacBook Air, iPad mini, and iPhone 13 mini. He will fight to the death to keep a mini iPhone in the lineup. In his free time, Joe enjoys video games, movies, photography, running, and basically everything outdoors.
This was always likely to be overturned on appeal so it was baffling that the lower court refused the stay.
