Colombia: After the ban, Apple’s response was quick

0 0

Apple has just suffered a historic setback in Colombia. The Apple brand can no longer sell an iPhone 12 or 13 there.

The day will have been long for the avocados of the apple brand. If the latter have an unenviable schedule in recent months with trials all over the world, the historic court decision of the court of Bogota in Colombia could almost sign the coup de grace.

But even on their knees, the Apple brand wants (and can) defend itself. As a reminder in this case, the justice of the South American state concluded that Apple had taken advantage of patents belonging to another competing brand. In the specific case of the Colombian file, it is the Swedish firm Ericsson .

Apple simply banned from selling its latest iPhones

While Apple expected a harsh verdict, no one imagined that Colombian justice could go this far. In a country where iOS is the second most used operating system, with nearly 12% of the population, Colombia has decided to deprive itself of it.

Indeed the verdict makes it illegal to sell iPhones or iPads with 5G modems . All of Apple’s newest devices are disabled by this court ruling. Obviously, such a verdict made the lawyer in charge of the case for Apple jump out of his chair, who immediately asked that this court decision be reviewed on appeal.

If a second trial should therefore take place in the coming months, many specialists in the Colombian jurisdiction assure that the facts are there and that the verdict will be close, if not identical. Gradually realizing that Colombian justice will not plead in its favor in this case, Apple is trying new methods to turn things to its advantage.

A decision that could appeal to others

The Cupertino company has just judged that this decision was “a violation of civil rights”. If this accusation is unlikely to change anything, the apple brand is trying to save its image and now fears that this historic court decision will serve as a precedent in other countries.

Because on the other side of the bar, Ericsson savors. The Swedish company knows that this court decision will not change much, but a similar lawsuit is underway in the United Kingdom . This too could, in the worst case scenario for Apple, remove all devices with a 5G modem from sale.

According to streaming platform analytics service Reelgood, the numbers are very good for Apple and Apple is making a name for itself in the world of SVOD. A bet that was not won in advance. Note that in its report, Reelgood details what works on Apple TV+ . Not surprisingly, it is above all the series that are popular with subscribers. The engagement rate for the latter is 40% higher than for the same period last year. As far as feature films are concerned, Apple is also succeeding, but the growth is less impressive. The apple brand is indeed progressing by 20%. A success that many explain by the recent enrichment of the catalog on the Apple side. The Cupertino company has invested in original programs, and the creativity of the writers is paying off. Apple takes advantage of the fall of Netflix to grow It should also be remembered that Apple, like Disney+, is taking advantage of the fall of the Netflix monster to recover its health. When announcing quarterly results, the Red N saw a loss of nearly one million subscribers over the past three months. People who have largely chosen to cancel to afford another service. For Apple, the qualitative and quantitative increase in the program in the catalog is necessarily a good thing, but the latter comes at the right time. While Netflix is ​​getting bogged down in stories of advertisements and non-sharing of accounts, Apple's solution is becoming the "cool" platform of the moment. It remains to be seen whether Apple will succeed in retaining these subscribers, who are more and more frivolous over time. Previous post Apple TV+ is loading up on subscribers this summer
