Apple Watch sales will resume now

Apple Watch sales will resume now

Apple was resuming sales of its latest smartwatches on Thursday, a day after a federal appeals court temporarily overturned an earlier ban on their import and sale in the United States.

But the fate of the watches will ultimately depend on how the ongoing legal battle in federal court plays out over the next few weeks.

The company stopped selling the Apple Watch Series 9 and Watch Ultra 2 in its flagship stores on December 21 and at retail locations on Christmas Eve. The halt was the result of a patent case that Apple lost in October.

The ruling in that case became final Tuesday after President Biden's administration declined to step in and overturn it. But on Wednesday, a federal appeals court ordered the government not to implement it “until further notice” while the court considers Apple's appeal.

Yes. The company said Wednesday it would resume retail sales of the two new watches at some Apple Stores that day and at other stores by Saturday.

Apple said online sales of both watches will resume on its website on Thursday at 12 pm Pacific or 3 pm Eastern.

The case against Apple before the US International Trade Commission focuses on the technology that some Apple Watches use to detect the wearer's pulse rate by measuring the percentage of oxygen in their blood.

commission ruled in October Some models of Apple Watches were found to be infringing on patents held by two California medical technology companies, Masimo and Cercor Laboratories. It ordered Apple to stop selling the Apple Watch Series 9 and Watch Ultra 2 after Christmas.

The Biden administration had 60 days to decide whether to veto the commission's decision. On Tuesday he said that this happened chose not toMaking the decision final.

But on Wednesday, a federal appeals court accepted a new request from Apple to halt enforcement of the judgment as the appeals process begins. It gave the Commission until January 10 to respond to Apple's request for a further delay in implementing the ban.

No, although the legal battle will ultimately determine whether sales, service and repairs of Apple's latest watches will continue long term.

The fight may partly hinge on proposed redesigns of two watches that Apple has submitted to United States customs officials for approval.

The ban temporarily halted Wednesday applies to several other models that use the same pulse-monitoring technology, including the Apple Watch Series 6, 7 and 8 and all models of the Apple Watch Ultra. But those models are not currently sold in Apple Stores or on the company's website. (The ban did not apply to the Apple Watch SE.)

This decision affected sales only in the United States.
