Its emerging from one of the chip maker Qualcomm that court in China injected Apple in usual way. Most probably the courts verdict will effect Apple customers in China because they have asked Apple to halt selling models starts from iPhone 6 and onwards. Apple is bound to abide courts verdict in pursue of IPR, intellectual property rights.
The patents in question relate to features that allow users to adjust and change photographs, Qualcomm said. Given the disputes revolve around software, it is possible they could be fixed with an update that would remove the features.
Apple has been banned by a court from selling iPhones in China, according to chip maker Qualcomm.
The company says that a Chinese court has granted two preliminary injunctions that will force Apple to stop selling a whole range of iPhones released since the iPhone 6s. That accounts for just about every phone Apple has made in the last three years: the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X.
Qualcomm said that the ruling required Apple to stop importing and selling the phones.
“We deeply value our relationships with customers, rarely resorting to the courts for assistance, but we also have an abiding belief in the need to protect intellectual property rights,” said Don Rosenberg, Qualcomm’s general counsel.
