Apple's iPhone lock-in legal

Written by

German court rules


A German court has ruled that Apple's iPhone lock-in exclusively with T-Mobile is legal. Vodafone challenged the deal by Apple and managed to win an injunction preventing lock-in software from being used in Europe.

However, a German court overturned a temporary injunction it granted two weeks ago, which forced T-Mobile to sell iPhones that were not tied to a single network. Apple has similar licensing agreements with O2 in the UK and AT&T in the U.S.

Apple still faces two lawsuits in the U.S. from people alleging that preventing users from unlocking their iPhones is an unreasonable restriction of consumer choice.
