Apple Violated Chinese Court Order, Qualcomm Says
Qualcomm said this week that Apple had violated the orders of a Chinese court’s orders to stop selling iPhones, despite the software update that the company pushed last Monday.
The Chinese hardware manufacturer was referring to a case that it won in preliminary court prohibiting Apple to sell iPhone models that violated two Qualcomm software patents. However, the phones were reportedly still being sold in China.
Qualcomm also believes that Apple’s Dec 14 software update was just a way to circumvent the infringement. Meanwhile, Apple also remained silent on the court order which concerned patents on software features for switching between apps on a smartphone and resizing photos before setting them as a wallpaper on the device.
