“Unleashed” implies Apple Silicon is being set free in some way. I guess it could be confined to Pro laptops (i.e., the M1 is “unleashed” in the M1X), but you have to wonder if we’re going to see an iMac Pro or something like that, free from the thermal constraints of tablets and laptops (and ultra-thin iMacs)…
I haven’t read the order, but obviously this isn’t about links to outside payments inside the app — it’s about how Apple then collects its cut of those payments, which the judge ruled they can collect. So a whole system for doing that has to be put in place. It’s not a small thing — it’s a major change to how Apple collects its share of IAPs.Apple basically has to create a set of requirements that allow them to audit payments originating inside the app. Surely they will require compliance with those requirements for an app to be approved.That said, it’s not exactly rocket science. Apple can do that in a timely manner. So I get the judge’s criticism. But I also think it’s likely the appeal to the higher court will succeed, on the grounds that it will be costly for Apple to implement and then roll back a change like that if they win their appeal.
I wonder what the App Store developer agreement/contract says about this. I don’t know, but I’ll guess it says Apple can use their apps to promote the App Store.These developers have an easy solution to this problem — just pull their apps from the store. Problem solved!Wait, what? They don’t want to do that? Why?
I thought this had already been decided and not granted. What am I missing?The original judge was unlikely to grant a stay. The appeals court is the appropriate court to grant a stay, and it seems likely it will do so.

corrections said:Phone sales may have some impact on PC demand, but it’s pretty clear that virtually every tablet sold kills a PC sale. Look at PC sales data next to the timeline of iPad sales [...]
If a Chromebook is a PC then an iPad is a PC.
It hardly makes sense to imagine them selling a 5K Thunderbolt 3 external display with an integrated graphics card without offering one without the graphics card. Mainly due to the Mac Pro, not to mention the iMac 5K, and the coming Thunderbolt 3 versions of each.
So I would look for a Thunderbolt 3 "Retina" 5K Display with an optional integrated graphics card for use with MacBook Pros and iPad Pros.
