New York, March 27, 2017: Apple has won a trial against a Chinese phone maker in Beijing as a court overturned a ruling against Apple Inc. over iPhone patents, a media report said on Monday.

The Beijing IP Court ruled that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus do not infringe on patents for exterior smartphone design held by a defunct local manufacturer, Shenzhen Baili Marketing Services Co, technology website marketwatch.com reported.

The disputes were over the exterior design of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models, which Shenzhen Baili claimed were a copy of their 100C smartphones.

Initially, Apple was handed an injunction to stop selling its iPhone 6 line in Beijing for alleged infringement.

Apple and Beijing-based phone retailer Zoomflight quickly filed an administrative appeal with the Beijing Intellectual Property Bureau and Apple was permitted to sell the phones until further review by the court.

The Cupertino-based company on Saturday opened a new Apple Store in Nanjing city of China which has a 90-by-30-foot glass entryway.

For the first time, customers can explore The Forum X — a place where the local community can gather and learn — and The Boardroom — a space for local entrepreneurs, developers and business customers to get hands-on advice and training.

Earlier this month, Apple announced it would invest $508 million in China to build two additional Research and Development (R&D) centres in Shanghai and Suzhou to boost local talent.

Apple’s attempt to boost its presence in China began last September with the opening of its first R&D centre in Beijing’s Zhongguancun Science Park, often referred to as “China’s Silicon Valley”.

With this investment, Apple will have a total of four centres in China. (IANS)

In an attempt to dive deeper into streaming original video content, Apple announced it has given a multi-series order to non-profit organisation named “Sesame Workshop” to create content, especially for children.

The announcement comes as a part of the iPhone-maker’s partnerships and show unveilings ranging from a reboot of Steven Spielberg’s “Amazing Stories” to a wide-ranging deal with Oprah Winfrey.

“‘Sesame Workshop’ will draw on their 50 years of expertise creating children’s programming to produce live action and animated series and to develop a puppet series,” CNET quoted Apple as saying late on Wednesday.

However, as per the report, “Sesame Street” is not part of Apple’s deal with “Sesame Workshop” which will otherwise offer a wide range of programming for all ages.
