Qualcomm has dealt a blow to Apple with Fuzhou Intermediate People’s Court banning the sale of selected iPhone models in China. The move was for the violation of two Qualcomm patents.The infringements are on patents related to resizing photographs and managing apps on a touch screen.
It’s part of a string of disputes between the two former partners who suits and counter suits.
Despite the ban, the iPhones — from the 6S to the X series — are still on sale in China while Apple appeals the court decision. The three new models announcedin September were not part of the case.
