Apple met with another round of reprieve today thanks to the U.S. International Trade Commission. A judge with the agency said the ITC won’t prevent Apple from importing Intel-based iPhones into the U.S. Qualcomm had earlier filed a complaint with the ITC concerning Apple’s use of its power management patent. The judge overseeing the case agreed that the iPhones do infringe on that one patent, but refused to block their entry into the country. He noted “public interest factors” in denying Qualcomm’s request. Neither company commented on the matter.
