Apple Inc. removed the products of Nokia Corp. unit Withings from its stores as a result of a legal dispute with the Finnish tech giant, Recode reported Dec. 24.
Withings reportedly makes Wi-Fi scales and other digital health and fitness gear. According to an error message on Apple's web store, Withings' products are "no longer available on apple.com."
Nokia upped the ante in a growing conflict with Apple on Dec. 21, filing lawsuits in the U.S. and Europe alleging that Apple had violated the Finnish cellphone maker's patents in creating its mobile devices. The suits, which accused Apple of infringing on 32 of the phone maker's patents, come a day after Apple filed a suit of its own accusing several patent-holding companies of conspiring with Nokia to fix prices for the technology.
