Tricks when developing iOS updates, which went to Apple to eliminate violations of the patents Qualcomm, it is not allowed to demand a ban of iPhone sales on the market of the United States of America, found out Ai. Despite the arguments Qualcomm, insisting on the limitation of sales of smartphones Apple is illegally using patented technology, the international trade Commission United States does not satisfy this requirement.
First of all, as decided by judge Thomas Pender, the demand to ban iPhone sales with Intel chips, even if they do use developments Qualcomm, cannot be satisfied for objective reasons.

Ban sales of iPhone
The decision of the judge was on hand, Apple, angry Qualcomm.

To tell the truth, judges ‘ decisions, which allow companies to continue selling products that infringe other people’s patents, are the exception rather than the rule. Such loyalty on the part of the authorities may allow Apple, if changes are found to be ineffective, prolong the test again, and then another and another, while retaining the ability to flout the law and the interests of the former partner in the face of Qualcomm.
