: Judge denies Apple’s motion to delay App Store changes in Epic antitrust case

Federal Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers late Tuesday tossed Apple Inc.’s motion to stay her court-ordered changes to the App Store, and the company must eventually let developers add links and buttons to external payment options on its digital platform.

“Apple’s motion is based on a selective reading of this Court’s findings and ignores all of the findings which supported the injunction,” her order read.

Gonzalez Rogers made her original ruling in the Apple-Epic Games Inc. antitrust lawsuit in September.

In a hearing Tuesday, Apple

said it needed more time to rewrite its anti-steering policies that bar app developers from linking to payment methods besides the iOS App Store.

“Apple believes no additional business changes should be required to take effect until all appeals in this case are resolved. We intend to ask the Ninth Circuit for a stay based on these circumstances,” an Apple spokesperson said in an email to MarketWatch.

Apple contends it will be irreparably harmed if it is forced to allow developers to steer their customers to cheaper payment systems starting in December, as the judge ordered.
