As we commented yesterday, Apple released an emergency iOS update that, in theory, in addition to solving a problem with eSIM activation on the XS, XS Max and XR iPhones, would solve Qualcomm's patent merger that spawned the biggest policy in the past week. .
According to the Reuters, Apple has confirmed that yesterday's update was released for this purpose, but it seems that Qualcomm is not at all satisfied with that solution. According to the company's vice president, Don Rosenberg, "Apple's statements following the issuance of the injunction were deliberate attempts to deceive (the court decision)."
Despite Apple's efforts to minimize the importance of the claim and its claims in various ways, Apple apparently continues to disregard the legal system by violating the injunctions.
The injunction that Qualcomm's VP of course referred to was released earlier last week about banning several models of iPhones from China that infringed on the chipmaker's patents. Apple, however, said that "all iPhones remain available for sale" in the country and continue to do so.
When questioned by Reuters On Qualcomm's statements, Apple reiterated its position and believes "to be in compliance with the court order." The company has not clarified why it believes it is complying with the request, but that may have to do with the assumption that devices running iOS 12 do not include such patent infringing features.
Qualcomm's effort to ban our products is another desperate move by a company whose illegal practices are being investigated by regulators around the world. We will pursue all our legal options through the courts.
This, as we said, is an assumption. In the order issued by the Chinese court, no specific operating system is mentioned, but software features related to application management (switching between apps) on a smartphone and another involving some photo issue, as the AppleInsider.
If this battle was about to end, now may not be the case even more after Ma's partners declare chipmaker war.
