Apple will release a software update to iOS 12.1 next week, for iOS 12.1.3. This software update will tweak Chinese iPhone models to comply with the Qualcomm Ruling in China – aiming to modify functions that a local court found had infringed on a pair of key Qualcomm Inc. patents.


Reported by Bloomberg, Apple provided a public message with the following:


“To address any possible concern about our compliance with the order, early next week we will deliver a software update for iPhone users in China addressing the minor functionality of the two patents at issue in the case.”


We will update you when this update is available for download.
