Apple will sell older iPhones back in Germany again

As Apple Inc. AAPL -0.22% said it would bring some phones back in stores in Germany, two months after removing them after it had removed the models because a court ruled here that the smartphone maker had infringed on a patent by Qualcomm Inc. QCOM 0.80% .


“To ensure that all iPhone models can again be available to customers in Germany, we have no choice but to stop using Intel chips and ship our phones with Qualcomm chips in Germany,” the company said on Thursday. The phones will also be available in Apple’s website on Thursday.

According to Wall Street Journal, Apple had withdrawn sales for some iPhones, including iPhone 7, 7+, 8, 8+, after a regional court in Munich ruled in December that the Cupertino, Calif based company had infringed on a patent held by Qualcomm. The two tech giants have been engaged in a global legal dispute, as WSJ says, with cases decided or pending in Germany, China and the U.S.
