Qualcomm said in a report that they believe that Apple is in the process of violating the Chinese court’s orders to be on the list of selling iPhones despite the iOS 12.1.2 software update that Apple pushed on Monday. On December 10 Qualcomm had won a preliminary court order in China banning Apple from selling some older iPhone models that the court found disrupting two Qualcomm software patents. On the very same day, Apple made a statement that all its phones continued on sale in China.
On 14th of December Apple also stated that it would push a software update to its iPhones this week. On the other hand, Cupertino a California-based company said it believed it was in an agreement which was made with the court’s orders, it would update its software so that their remains no issue in-between their compliance and the others.
Apple apparently continues to disobey the legal system by violating the orders. Apple never ever openly commented last week about it believes for its current iPhones sale in China complied with the court’s order. This concerned the patents on software features for swapping in-between applications on a smartphone and resizing photos before setting them as wallpaper on a phone.
Along with many media outlets, including the CNBC, reported that Apple thought that the court’s orders applied only to iPhones running older versions of its iOS operating system. But as per to the order of the court a copy of which Qualcomm showed to Reuters, had no reference of operating systems and dedicated only on software features.
Qualcomm has faith in Apple that it is still in abusing the order of the court as Apple continues to sell the phones and did not receive a clear order from the Chinese court allowing it to do so.
