Samsung -- which is facing a separate Smartflash suit -- has however been granted a halt to proceedings while the validity of patents is determined by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Reuters said. The outcome could influence the course of Apple's case. In...

One of these is a unified flex cable connecting internal components like the rear camera, LED flash, and power and volume controls to the logic board, according to French site Nowhereelse. In the iPhone 6, Apple depends on two separate cables to achieve the same...
