Today, the Finnish company announced it has filed new claims against Apple, this time in the UK, Germany and the Netherlands.
According to Nokia, the new claims add other 13 patents to the 24 that Apple was allegedly already infringing in the US
The patents are related to touch user interface, signal noise suppression, antenna structures, on-device app stores, caller ID and other technologies used by Apple “in many of its products”, “including iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.”
“The Nokia inventions protected by these patents include several which enable compelling user experiences. For example, using a wiping gesture on a touch screen to navigate content, or enabling access to constantly changing services with an on-device app store, both filed more than ten years before the launch of the iPhone,” declared Paul Melin, vice president, Intellectual Property at Nokia.
