Apple was excluded to sell the iPhone 7 and 8 models in Germany by following a clear clash with Qualcomm Inc. in December.

The German court has ordered Apple Company to stop doing press release claiming that all iPhones would be available for users in the country through carriers and resellers. The iPhone maker had a patent dispute with Qualcomm Inc. and so, the makers ware strictly banned to sell all iPhone products of the company in Germany from the month of last December. The company has been stopped from releasing press documents by Qualcomm for using the statement to press in response to the December ruling controversy.

The Apple Company claimed that iPhone 7 and 8 will remain available to customers through more than 4,300 carriers and resellers shop across Germany and it would not have longer stock of the iPhone 7 and 8 at its 15 marketing outlets in the country. The situation had been under strict jurisdiction under a panel of judges.

A three-judge panel of Germany court said Apple’s press release gives consumers and retailers a false impression to provide unrestricted accessibility of the iPhones. The company did not respond to the request for comment on Friday. They wrote that “The press release … is misleading as it contains statements that are at least potentially deceptive about the availability of the goods, namely the iPhones affected by the ruling,” Additionally Qualcomm said “the order speaks for itself”.
