Apple And Qualcomm Back In Court Battling Over The iPhone

Qualcomm recently filed suit against Apple again, this time with the Beijing’s Intellectual Property Court for patent infringement.

Qualcomm is seeking to stop production and sales on the iPhone in China, this long and costly battle may be with us for a some time. Both companies are suing each other in more than one country, Apple is suing Qualcomm in an Antitrust suit in the United States, Apple is also stating that Qualcomm is charging unfair prices for its technology in the United Kingdom, Japan, Taiwan, and China. Now Qualcomm has taken its case to China claiming patent infringement. If the company is successful against Apple, Apple could be blocked from selling or manufacturing some of its iPhones in China, which of course would cause a major financial set back for Apple.

The Beijing Intellectual Property Court is one of three specialist venues in the Chinese judiciary that has been set-up to rule solely on cases dealing with patents, trademark, and some administrative cases which could involve copyright and unfair competition. The court has the power to issue injunctions and award damages, if by chance an injunction is granted, the consequences would be quite severe for the company that was issued the injunction.

Another alternative to this issue would be for both parties to return back to the negotiation table and reason out their differences, but then that would make them both politically correct in resolving the issue.

Apple’s Lightning Dock is a handy iPhone accessory, considering that it already incorporates its own 3.5mm port, comes with a rubber surface to prevent sliding and allows you to charge your iPhone and listen to music through your headphones at the same time.

And even though the latest generation Lightning Dock is not a new product for Apple, it’s new gold color option is, and was just released with the new iPhone 8. And to go along with the new iPhone 8, they designed the Dock to match every single color the iPhone comes in, for anybody that would like to match their device with the dock.

They both have a metallic finish with an aluminum surface that changes colors depending on the lighting, that looks a bit iridescent depending on how you turn it. Making it a great accessory ontop of your desk or any type of table area, since its shiny gold can blend yet stand out, on pretty much any surface you decide to put in on.

So if you would like to match your gold iPhone 8 with your Lightning Dock, you can purchase the gold color at Apple’s official website for $49.99, along with their standard older colors they have, which are black, sliver and space grey.

Our skins are not “stickers”. They are much more than that. Each skin is made from a high-quality vinyl that has “comply” technology to eliminate all air-bubble problems you would normally have when applying. This makes it nearly impossible to get an air pocket you can’t rub out.

How it’s made:

After the skins are printed on the high-quality vinyl, they are run through a clear-lamination process. What does this do? This protects the graphic itself from scratches and print removal, allowing the skin to appear brand new for quite a while. After the lamination process, we then take it through our plotter that cuts the outline for you to peel from.

When you’re ready to remove, just start at a corner and peel it off. It’s very simple and it doesn’t leave that sticky residue that a sticker would! Depending on how long your skin has been on your MacBook, Some residue may stay on the device. Don’t panic though! All you’ll need to do is rub it off with your finger. If there is any residue, it DOES NOT REQUIRE any liquid cleanup. Our skin sticks to the new aluminum more than the glass phones. This is easy to remove as it rubs right off, so don’t freak out!

Feel free to message us if you have any questions.

Apple Rolls Out Third Beta Of iOS 11.1 To Developers

Apple has rolled out the third beta of iOS 11.1 to developers and the second beta of iOS 11.1 to public beta testers.

This beta addresses the bug that prevented the iOS 11 Cover Screen with Notifications from being accessed from the middles of phone’s display. Not too long ago, Apple engineering chief Craig Federighi responded to a Mac Rumors reader saying that a fix for this bug would be released in an upcoming iOS update.

In an email to Federighi, MacRumors reader Michael asked the following question:

“Ever since iOS 11 was released as a beta, the ability to invoke the Notification Center from the middle of the screen during reachability was removed. This was an incredibly useful feature as one didn’t have to awkwardly try to take ones’ thumb all the way back to the top even though reachability was invoked—defeating the whole purpose of it for one crucial task. 

If this was done by design I fail to see the purpose or any benefit whatsoever to its removal. If it’s a bug, I hope Apple can get around to finally fixing this mistake/oversight.”Federighi replied to Michael’s email with a short “We are fixing it” note, confirming that the issue will be addressed in a future version of iOS 11. 

The iOS 11.1 beta brings an updated camera icon under Restrictions, a faster unlock animation, a new animation when users tap the status bar to scroll upwards and a built-in keyboard that offers several emoji suggesting when typing emoji-related words such as “happy” or “cake.”

iOS 11.1 will include a lot more emoji such as Crazy Face, Vampire, Exploding Head, Face Vomiting, Pie, Brain and more. Apple also brought back the 3D Touch App Switcher gesture, which will allow users to 3D Touch at the left edge of the display to access the multitasking Apple Switcher interface.

iOS 11.1 is expected to be released to the general public later this month.
