A ban on sales of older models of Apple's iPad and iPhone in the US has been overturned by the Obama administration.
A ban on sales of older models of Apple's iPad and iPhone in the US has been overturned by the Obama administration. In June, the US International Trade Commission (ITC) ruled that Apple infringed a patent of rival Samsung. President Barack Obama's trade representative has now vetoed that decision because of its "effect on competitive conditions in the US economy".
