Apple this week released a software update to its iOS operating system to slightly modify how the iPhone behaves, according to The Wall Street Journal. The update seemed to have been pushed to iPhones on Monday, based on user reports on Twitter, although Apple would not affirm to Reuters that it had been pushed. After winning a preliminary court order in China, Qualcomm said last week that Apple shouldn't be allowed to sell some older iPhone models in the country due to patent infringement.
On Dec. 14, Apple said that it would release a software update to its iPhones this week to deal with any potential concern as regards to its compliance with the order. If the court finds the update to be appealing and agrees then it will mean that Apple will be able to continue the sale of affected iPhones and ban will be uplifted.
Meanwhile, Qualcomm believes that Apples is still violating the court order by not stopping its phone sales in China. The reason for the trials with the "Apple" of the Corporation become patent violations on her part.
"Despite Apple's efforts to downplay the significance of the order and its claims of various ways it will address the infringement, Apple apparently continues to flout the legal system by violating the injunctions", Qualcomm general counsel Don Rosenberg told Reuters. The patent in question has to do with resizing images and app management. The order "should be taking a bite out of Apple's sales right now".
Qualcomm has now accused Apple of attempting to direct attention and violating the court order as the company had not received any permission to resume sales after the ban.
However, Qualcomm will not make it easy for Apple.
