Apple’s recent headache in China
Apple is suffering multiple setbacks in China recently. A temporary injunction was imposed on Apple banning it from selling certain models of phone products in China last week due to the infringement of Qualcomm’s patents which enable users to adjust and reformat photos and manage applications through touch-based navigating apps. In response to the order, Apple refused to accept it but instead updated its operation system so as to circumvent the accusation and show compliance. Nevertheless, Qualcomm has filed again to the Chinese court applying to “enforce the injunction”, which may bring Apple around $5 billion revenue loss in the remains of 2018 once it is forced to comply and leave more sales opportunities to its main competitor, Huawei, especially for smartphones priced below 7,000 yuan (US$1,013).
