Apple Removes Withings Products from Store Shelves

Apple In Court
December 26, 2016

Thanks to a patent dispute with Nokia, Apple removes Withings products from the company’s retail stores, according to MacRumors.

The Dec. 23 report notes that the products were pulled “in the last day or two.” These include Withings products like the Body Cardio Scale, the Smart Body Analyzer, and the Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor.

Last week, Apple filed an antitrust lawsuit accusing Nokia of illegally transferring patents to patent holding firm Acacia Research and Conversant Property Management in an “illegal scheme” to demand additional royalties from the Cupertino company.

Nokia fired back by filing 40 patent infringement lawsuits against Apple across eleven countries after saying it’s been unable to cut a licensing deal with Apple for its patents that cover displays, user interface, software, antenna, chipsets and video coding.

Nokia purchased Withings in April 2016.
