China ruling could ban some Apple iPhones sales amid Qualcomm fight

Dec 11 , 2018

(Reuters) - Chip supplier Qualcomm Inc said on Monday it had won an order from a Chinese court banning the sale of several older Apple Inc iPhone models in China because of two patent violations, although Apple said its phones remained on sale.

The preliminary order from the Fuzhou Intermediate People’s Court, issued last week, affects the iPhone 6S through the iPhone X that were originally sold with older versions of Apple’s iOS operating system. It is not clear what the ruling means for phones with Apple’s newer operating system, and Apple said all iPhone models remained for sale in China. The trio of models released in September were not part of the case.
