“There is something that has to be taken very seriously,” said Rosenberg. Order “should take a bit of Apple’s sales right now.”

Bloomberg reports that the court order directly affects the sale of the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. iPhone XS and iPhone XR are not included because they were released that Qualcomm was filed for the ban, Rosenberg also confirmed today that Qualcomm has subsequently asked the court to extend the ban on these devices.

Rosenberg also adds that it is not up to Apple to determine whether it complies with the court decision, but it is Apple’s responsibility to follow the order and return to court to prove that it no longer violates the two Qualcomm patents: [19659004] Qualcomm executive said the burden on Apple is to follow the order or return to court to prove that it is no longer a violation.
