Apple and Qualcomm have been engaged in a patent war. Earlier this month, Qualcomm won a legal battle against Apple in China. A Chinese court found Apple guilty of violating two patents which are held by Qualcomm. The court’s ruling will restrict Apple from importing and selling certain iPhone models in the country. The restricted devices include smartphones ranging between the iPhone 6S and the iPhone X models. The patents are related to navigating apps on a touch screen and resizing photos. But according to Apple, they can easily resolve the issue and comply with the court’s ruling.Apple’s Solution

Face ID uses more than 30,000 infrared dots to map a users face. This creates a 3D image of the user which is used to unlock the iPhone. Apple claims [...]
