A Texas-based mobile technology company has filed a lawsuit against Apple, claiming infringement of 16 patents covering a range of critical software and hardware features.
Seven Networks is an active mobile technology company based in both Texas and Finland. The company doesn’t appear to be a patent troll, and actively develops apps and tools.
The lawsuits were filed in the Eastern Court of Texas, and says multiple Apple technologies are in violation of owned intellectual property. The legal action includes a number of macOS and iOS features, including the iPhone’s “Low Battery” warning, push notifications, automatic App Store downloads, and much more.
Seven asserts U.S. Patent Nos. 9,369,539 , 9,438,550, 9,473,914, 9,516,127, 9,603,056, 9,608,968, 9,648,557, 9,712,476, 9,712,986, 9,769,176, 10,027,619, 10,039,029, 10,091,734, 10,110,534, 10,135,771 and 10,243,962 have all been violated. (Via AppleInsider)
It appears that Seven developed all but one patent-in-suit. The one bit of intellectual property not initially credited to Seven (the ‘557 patent), was filed by SNRLabs, a wireless technology company acquired by the plaintiff in 2013.
