A Chinese court has overturned a ruling against Apple over iPhone patents, a win for the tech giant in one of its toughest markets. The Beijing IP Court ruled the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus don’t infringe on patents for exterior smartphone design held by a defunct local manufacturer, Shenzhen Baili Marketing Services, The Wall Street Journal reports. The court found Baili had no grounds to claim the exterior designs were exclusive, and that it was easy for consumers to detect the differences, according to the verdict reported by a newspaper supervised by China’s Supreme People’s Court. In May last year, the Beijing Intellectual Property Office granted Baili a sales injunction in the capital city against the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
