Chinese court rules against Apple in patent case

The Fuzhou Intermediate People’s Court in China issued an injunction against Apple in China for violating two Qualcomm patent rights. Qualcomm stated that the patents were unlawfully used by Apple to ‘enable consumers to adjust and reformat the size and appearance of photographs, and to manage applications using a touch screen when viewing, navigating and dismissing applications on their phones’. The injunction will ban the import and sales of most iPhones in China. Apple stated that this ban should only be related to iPhones with operating systems older than iOS 11 and that it will fight against the decision.
