China court grants Qualcomm injunction against Apple
by David Faber.
The dispute relates to two Qualcomm patents, but Apple says the ban only applies to phones that run on an older operating system.
The Fuzhou Intermediate People's Court in China granted the two preliminary injunctions against four Apple subsidiaries in China. It relates to two Qualcomm patents that enable users to adjust and reformat the size and appearance of photos and to manage applications using a touch screen when viewing and navigating apps on their phones. iPhones are currently sold with the operating system iOS 12, which Apple says does not violate the patents in question.
