Qualcomm Seeks Injunction Banning Sale of iPhone XR and iPhone XS in China

After successfully obtaining a preliminary injunction on the sale of older iPhones in China, Qualcomm is now trying to win one against the newer iPhone XR and iPhone XS, reports Reuters.

On Monday, A Chinese court had ordered a sales ban of some older Apple iPhone models for violating two patents of Qualcomm, though intellectual property lawyers said enforcement of the ban was likely still a distant threat.

It appears that Qualcomm will use the same patents in its new suit targeting this year's iPhones.

“We plan to use the same patents to file suit against the three new iPhone models,” Jiang Hongyi, a lawyer at Lexfield Law Offices.

Apple has said that the injunction doesn't apply to iPhones running iOS 12 and thus it has not stopped selling any models in the country. Nevertheless, it has filed a request for reconsideration with the court, the first step in an appeal process which could reach the Supreme Court.
