Hypothetically if it weren't appealed would it be the final say?

Only in the same federal district that issued the ruling. And even then its not binding. A different judge in the same district could come to a different conclusion.

I'm not sure what effect this judgement even has. The court declared that the search policy was unconstitutional but denied the request for an injunction, so I think right now there's nothing preventing the ICE from continuing to search devices even in that district?
