Apple Set to Remove Some iPhone Models in Germany After Patent Ruling

Apple Inc. is likely to pull some iPhone models from its German stores after Qualcomm Inc. said it had posted security bonds to enforce a court order banning the sale of those iPhone models in the country. The chipmaker posted the bonds of 1.34 billion euros ($1.52 billion) as part of a legal requirement by a German court, which found on Dec. 20 that Apple had infringed Qualcomm patents on power-saving technology used in smartphones.
