Apple is planning to redesign its watches to comply with the decision of the International Trade Commission (ITC) to ban the sale of Watch Ultra 2 and Watch Series 9 due to patent infringement. The tech giant will remove the blood oxygen measurement feature and the sensors required for this function. During the legal entanglement, Apple has submitted a software solution to the Customs Agency, which is expected to circumvent the legal disputes. If Apple’s appeal against the trade commission’s decision is unsuccessful, the redesigned watches are expected to be available in the market to avoid a new sales ban.

This decision by Apple comes after the Cupertino giant infringed on the patents of the medical technology company Masimo, which confirmed that Apple had implemented their patents into its devices. The ITC ruled that Apple violated patents related to blood oxygen measurement, resulting in the temporary suspension of sales for Watch 9 and Watch Ultra 2 in the United States.

To avoid further legal disputes, Apple plans to update the software that will modify the blood oxygen measurement application and its algorithms in a way that could bypass this issue without the actual loss of function. However, removing this technology from the watches could jeopardize customer demand, given that the controversial feature was highly praised by the public.
