Siri Part Of Nokia's Second Patent Infringement Case vs Apple; Apple Pulls Out Nokia Products From Online Store In Response

Nokia filed cases against Apple for patent infringement a few days ago and some details are gradually being revealed.

Just recently, Patently Apple uncovered details saying that the second lawsuit against Apple involves some of Siri's features. The patent also covered the cutout of the iPhones rear camera and the company's use of Qualcomm's RF technology.

According to the patent, some Siri services like "Find my iPhone" copies Nokia's 294 patent. Nokia says Siri utilizes processes that steal from its Lucent Technology patent particularly the "use of databases and tables that interact with web-based applications".

With regards to the RF technology, Nokia claims that some specific parts of the iPhone 6s are purchased from Qualcomm including the tech in question which happens to be a Nokia patent. Even though Qualcomm is more liable for patent infringement, in this case, Nokia decided Apple is guilty as well.

Nokia insists that it has not locked down on a deal with Apple regarding a licensing agreement.

Apple has already filed a lawsuit against Nokia alleging that the Finnish company has been conspiring with third party companies to "extract and extort exorbitant revenues unfairly and anticompetitively from Apple".

Apple also alleges that the "illegal patent scheme" between Nokia and Acacia Research and Conversant Property Management is just their way of squeezing as much money as they can since Nokia is failing in the industry.

In an apparent response to Nokia's allegations, the tech giant decided to pull out all Nokia products from the Apple Online Store. According to Mac Rumors, all Withings-branded accessories sold in its online store have been pulled out at least a couple of days ago.

The report also assumes the products are also no longer available in all Apple Stores.

Withings is owned by Nokia which bought the former for $192 million earlier this year. Some of its products that used to be for sale over at the Apple Online Store was the Body Cardio Scale, Smart Body Analyzer, and Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor.
