Push returns to iCloud email in Germany as Apple continues to battle Motorola in court
A couple of years ago, as a result of a patent suit in German court, Apple was forced to turn off push for iCloud email users in Germany. Today, it's turning push back on. David Meyer of GigaOm:
Apple is still appealing the decision and, at the end of August, it won an interim decision allowing it to resume services as normal. As PC World pointed out on Wednesday, Apple had to pay a hefty €100 million ($135 million) bond, given the interim nature of the ruling.
As a result, on Tuesday it could tell its iOS users: “Push email service available for iCloud, Yahoo!, AOL, QQ, and NetEase users located within the borders of Germany.”
If you're in Germany, let me know if iCloud push email is again working for you, and if so, how well it's working.
