Tuesday brings an ominous breeze from China, new banks for Apple Pay, CarPlay to the 2016 Hyundai Sonata, and a handful of new betas.
- Apple must share the iPhone trademark with a Chinese leather good manufacturer, of all things
- Think things were bad for Apple in Q2? Just wait, as the Chinese smartphone market is taking a hit
- Apple Pay is joined by Moody National Bank of Texas as well as 19 other firms, and UK gets a prepaid card option
- Have a 2016 Hyundai Sonata? Get a CarPlay update from your dealer
- Betas of OS X, iOS and tvOS hit the streets
The text version of the update is below.
Xintong Tiandi Technology,applied to register its trademark on the name — in the category of leather goods — in 2007. While Apple filed its own “iPhone” trademark in 2002, that application wasn’t approved until 2013.
According to a 2013 ruling from the Chinese trademark authority, since Apple couldn’t prove that “IPHONE” was already a well-known trademark in China before Xintong Tiandi registered it in 2007, “the general public will not link the trademark in dispute with Apple to harm its [Apple’s] interests.”
