Qualcomm seeks broader China iPhone ban as Apple pushes software update

Qualcomm seeks broader China iPhone ban as Apple pushes software update

Apple will start rolling out these updates starting next week, which would most likely address 'possible concern about their compliance with the court order.' These updates will further address the minor functionality of the two patents issued by Qualcomm in the court.

Apple, facing a court ban in China on some of its iPhone models over alleged infringement of Qualcomm patents, said on Friday (Dec 14) it will push software updates to users in a bid to resolve potential issues.

Chip maker Qualcomm caught everyone's attention earlier this week when it obtained an injunction that would prevent the import and sale of iPhones in China.

Despite the efforts from the Qualcomm, Apple has again filed a request to reconsider the order in the court.

Qualcomm has said the Fuzhou Intermediate People's Court in China found Apple infringed two patents held by the chipmaker and ordered an immediate ban on sales of older iPhone models, from the 6S through the X. In a filing obtained by Bloomberg, Apple argues that a Chinese ban will force it to settle its bruising battle with Qualcomm - an outcome that may harm the country's smartphone industry by hiking licensing fees.

That being said, we'll still have to wait for the court ruling at the end of the day.

Qualcomm and Apple disagree about whether the court order means iPhone sales must be halted. 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 has appealed against the ruling, and continues to sell both the older and newer iPhones in China.

The company has also mentioned that the new 2018 iPhone models were launched in the month of September this year and they were not part of the case.

This software update will change and/or remove the disputed Qualcomm technology, which Apple hopes will allow the company to avoid the sales ban.

In addition to the Chinese case, it's filed complaints against Apple in Munich and Mannheim, Germany, and lodged another one with the U.S. International Trade Commission in Washington.
