“Race Against Time: Will Biden Save Apple Watches? 🕒🍏

President Biden unlikely to intervene in Apple Watch ruling

The clock is ticking for President Joe Biden to prevent the removal of Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 from store shelves, following a US International Trade Commission ruling. The decision, due to a patent dispute with medical device maker Masimo, centers around a pulse oximeter patent that measures blood-oxygen levels. Apple, known for marketing its smartwatch as a life-saving device, faces the risk of losing its popular watch models. Despite Apple’s disagreement with the ruling and removal of the watches from its online store, Biden’s intervention before the end of Christmas day seems improbable.

Masimo’s CEO, Joe Kiani, accuses Apple of deliberately infringing on patents, adding to a history of legal disputes between the two companies. Apple has taken preemptive measures, removing affected watch models from stock and expressing intent to explore legal and technical solutions. The possibility of making software tweaks to address the patent violation exists, but success is uncertain. In the past, President Barack Obama intervened in a similar case involving Apple and Samsung, raising a slim hope for Biden’s involvement in this instance. Apple’s challenge is to navigate the legal complexities and potential modifications to keep its latest watches available to customers.
