Apple satovi: Nova taktika za izbegavanje zabrane prodaje

Apple is facing new challenges regarding the ban on the sale of their smartwatches, the Watch Series 9 and Watch Ultra 2, in the United States. After an unsuccessful request for a temporary freeze on the ban, Apple is considering implementing software updates that would disable the controversial blood oxygen sensors. This could potentially exempt these devices from the ban imposed by the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC).

The ITC ruling determined that Apple infringed on Masimo’s patent rights by incorporating blood oxygen sensors into their smartwatches. Although the Appeals Court denied Apple’s request for a temporary freeze on the sales ban, this does not mean that Apple’s appeal has been definitively dismissed.

The appeals process will continue, while the current sales ban does not provide a final judgment and does not exclude the possibility of the blood oxygen measurement function being reinstated at a later stage. This is not the first time that the sale of Apple Watch devices has been suspended due to patents. In the past month, the status of sales for these models has changed multiple times, further complicating the situation for Apple.

While Apple continues to fight against the sales ban on their watches, it remains to be seen how successful their innovative software update tactic will be. In the meantime, users are left uncertain about whether they will have access to the blood oxygen measurement function on their Apple smartwatches.
