A ban that threatened to stop the sale of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus phones in China has been overturned after a court ruled in favour of Apple in a patent dispute.
Chinese firm, Baili sought a ban last year saying the iPhone 6 and 6 plus bore striking similarities to the products from its parent company, Digione.
China’s patent regulator agreed with Baili and imposed the ban on Apple and local reseller Zoomflight.
But the Chinese court that overturned the ban said the regulator did not follow proper procedure when it was imposed.
It also said the product designs of the two companies contain differences which has a significant impact on the overall look.
Baili has said it will look over the judgment, before deciding whether to appeal.
