A Chinese court has ruled in favor of Qualcomm in that company's ongoing patent dispute against Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL). The court's ruling, for now, could prevent Apple from selling specific models of the iPhone in China.
Qualcomm Inc. (Nasdaq: QCOM) said Monday morning that the Fuzhou Intermediate People's Court in China has granted Qualcomm's request for two preliminary injunctions against Chinese subsidiaries of Apple. The court ordered the Apple subsidiaries to "immediately cease infringing upon two Qualcomm patents through the unlicensed importation, sale and offers for sale in China of the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X."
