  • Deleted from 3.1.3. “Developers cannot use information obtained within the app to target individual users outside of the app to use purchasing methods other than in-app purchase (such as sending an individual user an email about other purchasing methods after that individual signs up for an account within the app).”
  • Added 5.1.1 (x). “Apps may request basic contact information (such as name and email address) so long as the request is optional for the user, features and services are not conditional on providing the information, and it complies with all other provisions of these guidelines, including limitations on collecting information from kids.”

Looks like Apple is taking preliminary steps to comply with Judge Gonzalez-Rogers’ order, even though they’ve asked for it to be stayed pending appeal.

Doesn't surprise me. Kinda feel they're doing this appeal just to delay the eventual.

I think Apple didn’t really want to appeal. Remember, Epic announced first that it would appeal, and said so almost immediately. Apple waited until nearly the last minute. You never want to go into any court without equal footing. If the argument is just about what Epic wants, then there’s a good chance Epic will come away with something. If, instead, you have to split time and deal with what Apple is asking for too, then you have a better chance of walking away ok.
