Apple iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 Banned in Columbia: Apple is a smartphone brand whose flagship smartphones i.e. iPhones and other products, all are sold in many countries and are very popular all over the world. Recently, the government of a country has banned Apple’s latest iPhone, iPhone 13 and a year earlier model, iPhone 12. In this country, neither the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 13 will be sold nor will they be advertised. Let us know in detail in which country this ban has been imposed and how it will affect Apple.
Apple’s iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 will no longer be sold in this country
First of all, know in which country Apple’s iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 have been banned. For your information, let us tell you that these two flagship smartphones of Apple have been banned in Colombia (Columbia Bans iPhone 12 and iPhone 13). This decision has been given in the form of a court order and Apple has also started accepting it.
Why this decision has been taken
If you are wondering on what basis and why this decision has been taken, then know about it here. In fact, a court in the city of Bogota, Colombia has ruled that Apple will not be able to sell any of its devices with 5G connectivity in Colombia. Let us tell you that this decision has been taken in favor of Ericsson and it is a Preliminary Injunction against Apple. The lawsuit was over the new 5G licensing fees, in which Ericsson says Standard Essential accepts the validity of the patents, but the licensing fees are too high.
Apple got a big blow
Let us tell you that after this order of the Bogota Court, Apple will no longer be able to sell the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 with 5G connectivity in Colombia, as well as import new stock of these products and will not be able to advertise the products. Not only this, Apple has been asked to contact all online and offline stores in the country and immediately stop advertising of these products and also ban their sale. Local custom officers have also been ordered to block the import of new stock.
Let us tell you that the court has also imposed an anti-antisuit injunction on Apple, meaning that now Apple cannot appeal in any other court outside Colombia and cannot pressure Ericsson to lift the ban.
