China Bans Import of Some iPhones in Win for Qualcomm

Qualcomm today said that a Chinese court has granted two preliminary injunctions against Apple subsidiaries. The ruling orders the subsidiaries to "immediately cease infringing upon two Qualcomm patents through the unlicensed importation, sale and offers for sale in China of the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X." Qualcomm alleges that Apple is violating two of its patents, which let people resize and reformat pictures, and to view, navigate, and dismiss apps using a touch screen. Qualcomm says the patents were previously upheld as valid by the Chinese patent office. Qualcomm is seeking similar relief for other patents that it claims Apple is violating in China and other markets. Qualcomm and Apple have been locked in a bitter patent-related feud for nearly two years. Though today's preliminary ruling calls for "immediate" action, it's not clear how soon any sort of ban might actually begin. Apple did not immediately comment on the matter.
