Supreme Court Denies Petitions on Apple, Epic Appeals

The U.S. Supreme Court has turned down Apple’s attempt to appeal a decision in an antitrust case over its App Store, a rejection that could create new options for companies such as Netflix and Spotify to sign up customers.

Apple and “Fortnite” developer Epic Games last year separately asked the Supreme Court to weigh in on their legal dispute. The court denied the petitions of both companies Tuesday. A federal judge in 2021 had largely ruled against Epic, even as she ruled that Apple must allow third-party software makers to steer customers to payment options within their own apps.
