The appeal could now delay changes for years.
CNBC reports that the giant sent a notice of appeal asking for a stay of the injunction that will let developers add other in-app payment systems besides Apple's. This move could potentially lead to the new rules not taking effect until the end of the case.
"At a high level, it is my judgment that, without thoughtful restrictions in place to protect consumers, developers and the iOS platform, this change will harm users, developers, and the iOS platform more generally," Trystan Kosmynka, Apple's senior director of App Review, noted in a filing on Friday.
Previously, Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney noted that Apple gave itself access to an advertising slot that is now available to competitors – the iPhone's Settings screen. Some users noticed they are promoting their own services at the top of the Settings menu, just below their Apple ID.
