Apple can Temporarily Sell its Disputed Watches Again


Following an ongoing patent dispute with hardware manufacturer Masimo, Apple has been granted a temporary pause on the sales and import ban of its Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 wearables, a result of a decision from a US appeals court. The watches are now back on Apple’s retail stores and website for buyers.

Commenting on the temporary lift of the ban, Apple states:

“We are pleased the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has stayed the exclusion order while it considers our request to stay the order pending our full appeal.”

Back in October, a ruling made by the US International Trade Commission decided in favor of Masimo, citing Apple’s infringement of Masimo’s pulse oximeter patent which uses light-based technology in order to measure blood-oxygen levels. The ban was further put into effect after the Office of the President decided not to overturn the ITC ruling.

Of course with this latest development, buyers can once again purchase the Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2, that is until the temporary pause is ended.
