Apple China to push software update in bid to resolve Qualcomm case



Apple, who is facing a court ban in China on some of its iPhone models over alleged breach of Qualcomm patents, said Friday that it will push software updates to users to resolve potential issues.

Apple will perform software updates at the beginning of next week, "to resolve any concerns about compliance with the order," the company said in a statement sent to Reuters.

Earlier this week, Qualcomm said that a Chinese court had ordered a ban on the sale of some older Apple iPhone models to violate two of its patents, but intellectual property lawyers said that the ban would still take time to enforce.

"Based on the iPhone models we offer today in China, we believe we adhere to," Apple said.

"Early next week we will provide a software update for iPhone users in China addressing the lesser functionality of the two patents relevant to the case."

The case, obtained by Qualcomm, is part of a global patent issue Ween the two American companies that contain dozens of lawsuit. It creates uncertainty about Apple's business in one of its largest markets at a time when concerns about the weak demand for new iPhones are to ruin their shares.

Qualcomm has said that the Fuzhou Intermediate Court in China found Apple to violate two patents held by chipmaker and ordered an immediate ban on the sale of older iPhone models, from 6S to X.

Apple has said that all its Phone models were put on sale in mainland China and that it had filed a request for review with the court. All models appeared to be available for purchase on Apple China's website on Friday.

Qualcomm, the largest supplier of mobile phone chips, filed the case in China in late 201

7, claiming that Apple violated patents on photo resizing features and managing apps on a touchscreen.
