Apple wants to add the Galaxy S4 to the list of products its considers infringing for its second trial against Samsung in the U.S., reports The Verge. The company has a list of 22 products that it says infringe on the iOS user interface.

Following the release of the Galaxy S4, Apple says it has analyzed the device and "concluded that it is an infringing device and accordingly intends to move for leave to add the Galaxy S4 as an infringing product."

In order to add the Galaxy S4 to a list of infringing products it originally filed in August 2012, Apple will "eliminate (without prejudice)" one of Samsung's accused smartphones and tablets — which already include the Galaxy SII, Galaxy Note & Note II, and the Galaxy Nexus (full list in source link below). It has also been ordered to comply with Judge Lucy Koh's request to limit the number of patent claims and infringing devices ahead of next year's trial. Apple had originally gone after the Galaxy S III back in June, when it tried to have US sales of the device stopped before it was even launched.

Samsung has not requested any changes as of yet to the list of Apple products it believes are infringing.

Who cares APPLE.... you suffer from small man syndrome...! I have had iPhone since iPhone 3 and probably because I am lazy. I use android tablet and find that easy enough, but invested enough on iPhone apps to stay with simple system. If APPLE spent as much money on R&D as it does on sue and counter sue, imagine the products we could see coming out of there. Hell imagine if they shared knowledge, instead of being so closed minded.............!!!

I've had the iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, iPod, and iPad they're all great devices and still love talking trash about apple. iOS is extremely overrated, if you do your research essentially your paying all that money for the OS and how neat the cables are within the device. Good device, but too overpriced especially the want something similar to i OS then get Ubuntu for your PC almost the same thing and not 1500 dollars.

Yeah even though I love my iPhone 4S and iOS as well I must admit that is a beautiful screen and the colors on it are just wow. Maybe someday the iPhone will get larger or the iOS will run on other hardware as well like a Samsung. Just saying. I'm by far not an expert at all just an enthusiastic user.
