Apple looses mobile security battle against Corellium


Corellium, a Florida based company that offers virtual software to tap into iPhones and iPads, has won the battle against the American tech giant Apple Incs that wanted to ban its technology software on a permanent note through a lawsuit.

Technically, Corellium offers to customers a software that helps find bugs and vulnerabilities on iOS that were indirectly helping hackers and black hat developers. And the highlight of this 2017 startup is that it allows users to run a virtual iPhone on a desktop without the need of tampering the physical device.

So, Apple Inc decided to file a legal case against Corellium as its software could create troubles if it reaches the wrong hands like hackers. However, the iPhone maker reportedly lost the legal battle as the Florida court dismissed the claim that Corellium was violating copyrights law of iOS software.

The judge said that filed was in-fact helping the iPhone maker to strengthen its mobile security feature and was not helping others build a competing product to consumers.

Note 1- In the year 2018, Apple wanted to acquire Corellium for peanuts. But when its plan failed, it hit the company with a lawsuit alleging that the company has developed a software that could help hackers circumvent Apple device’s mobile security.

Note 2- In the past few months, Facebook and Google have faced a backlash from the congress for bullying small companies. Now, with the latest decision from the Florida court, it’s clear that even the US law condemns the issue to the core to support fresh tech and SMBs.
