Big trouble for Apple’s new iPhones

Big trouble for Apple’s new iPhones

Now, in a statement to Reuters, Apple has said it will also be pushing out new software to Chinese iPhone users to make sure their phones are compliant. Claiming patent infringement, Qualcomm convinced the Fuzhou Intermediate People's Court in China to issue a preliminary ban on sales of the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and the iPhone X.

In detail, a Chinese court has ordered Apple to ban sales of some Apple iPhones which are violating the two Qualcomm patents.

Recall thath Qualcomm, the biggest supplier of chips for mobile phones, filed its case against Apple in China in late 2017, saying the iPhone maker infringed patents on features related to resizing photographs and managing apps on a touch screen. Apple's response underscores the importance of the Chinese market, as well as Qualcomm's crucial role as a technology provider to the likes of Huawei Technologies Co. and Xiaomi Corp.

Apple warned that the ban would hurt Chinese manufacturers like Foxconn and noted that it had created 5 million jobs across the countrys supply chain. In all fairness, Apple isn't technically wrong. The filing points that the ban would force settle Apple's ongoing dispute with Qualcomm.

Marine Corps Calls Off Search for Missing Marines in Midair Collision
Both the Japan Self-Defense Forces and Japan Coast Guard announced Tuesday that they'd halted their search efforts at 6 a.m. Every member of the III MEF family mourns this loss and stands alongside the families of the fallen in this bad moment.

Apple hasn't commented on Qualcomm's latest strike, but the firm essentially ignored the original injunction, arguing that the case only applies to devices running iOS 11. In order to overcome this scenario in China, the Cupertino giant is now set to push a new update to old iPhones starting early next week.

The U.S. International Trade Commission has also said that it plans to review a previous ruling stating that a ban on iPhone imports was not in the interests of the general public - even if in the event that Apple infringed on a Qualcomm patent.

The ban comes as the trade war between the United States and China rages on.

"Apple and many other companies, consumers, and government will suffer truly irreparable harm", it says.
