Today it became known that the company Apple has filed a lawsuit and the reason for this is again patent. At this time Singapore Asahi Chemical & Solder Industries accuses the iPhone maker of patent infringement, describing the lead-free solders.
Some time ago a Singapore company appealed to the U.S. court, alleging that Apple infringes the patent under the number №6176947. Representatives of the applicant are confident that the patented lead-free solders are used in all electronic devices Apple – from the iPhone to the Mac Pro.
