Apple’s App Store can stay closed but developers can link to outside payments, says appeals court
Today’s decision reaffirms Apple’s resounding victory in this case, with nine of 10 claims having been decided in Apple’s favour. For the second time in two years, a federal court has ruled that Apple abide by antitrust laws at the state and federal levels.
The App Store continues to promote competition, drive innovation, and expand opportunity, and we’re proud of its profound contributions to both users and developers around the world. We respectfully disagree with the court’s ruling on the one remaining claim under state law and are considering further review.
