There are no other options. I'm hoping for the latter, of course.
If Apple loses any of the appeals, it will be given time to implement the changes. They won't have to be ready the day of the ruling. That's not how this works.
I started watching this without knowing anything about it, but I’ve found it enjoyable. It’s an original take on the alien-invasion genre. It hardly shows the aliens at all for most of the time. It doesn’t explain what’s going on. Instead, it focuses on the chaos and confusion on the ground, a portrait of humanity based on the idea that if there were an alien invasion, they probably wouldn’t announce themselves. There are a lot of unanswered questions, which is okay in the context. Each character holds a piece of the puzzle.It isn’t too hard to guess where it’s going, but at this point it’s still not clear, so I’m not going to say, as I don’t want to spoil it. Also, I could be completely wrong…

They may be exaggerating its effect on customers, but I suppose that really depends on what Apple does, and how developers respond. Higher prices for Apple customers who don’t want to give their personal information to a company like Epic seems a real possibility, for example.
