Epic Games wants Apple to comply to the new App Store policy immediately

Fornite maker Epic Games is protesting against postponing the implementation of the new App Store policy, the company says Friday. Apple wrote in a statement last week that following the court order is ” harmful to the company and its customers.” Epic doesn’t agree.

The judge ruled last month that Apple should give developers more options when buying outside the App Store. The tech company disagrees with the ruling and said earlier this month to appeal the ruling.

Epic Games wants Apple to comply to the new App Store policy immediately

Apple will allow app developers to use their own payment systems starting December 9. Last week, the company asked the judge for a postponement, because the appeal could take a year.

“The requested delay will enable Apple to protect consumers and the App Store, while the company addresses complex and rapidly changing legal, technological and economic challenges,” said Apple.

Epic Games believes, however, that the tech company must first demonstrate that it will suffer “irreparable damage” when the new policy comes into effect during the appeal. The game developer doubts whether Apple will suffer financial damage as a result of the court order, as the company responded positively to the ruling in September and did not immediately request a postponement.

“History shows that Apple will not make any changes in the absence of a court order,” said Epic Games.

Apple has not yet responded to Epic’s comments. The hearing on Apple’s request will take place on 9 November.

Ireland and Cyprus have one thing in common. The most beautiful islands are divided. Even proportions are strikingly similar. Both nations strive for unity and a good glass of the news.
