Court dismisses Apple’s payment monopoly appeal

Apple to appeal the decision immediately

Most Popular

A US court has refused tech giant Apple’s appeal against an order forcing it to open up its App Store payments system.

An earlier court order had ruled Apple’s refusal to allow app developers to implement their own payments systems in the App Store amounted to ‘incipient antitrust conduct’.

The order also said that Apple’s commission rates (30%) were ‘supercompetitive’, or too high.

Apple had sought to stay this order, but it’s appeal on that point was refused today by Judge Yvonne Gonzales. Gonzales also required Apple to conform with the original timeline for implementation of the Order by 9 December, denying Apple’s application for a 10 day extension.

An Apple spokesperson told Reuters the company would immediately appeal the decision.

The ruling is the latest in a lengthy antitrust battle over in-app payment systems launched last year by video game maker Epic Games, which objected to Apple’s steep 30% commission fees and tried to implement its own microtransaction system in its hugely popular game, ‘Fortnite’.
