Tel Aviv University professor and CEO of Corephotonics Dr. David Mendlovic founded the Israeli start-up in 2012.
The relationship between Apple and Corephotonics then turned sour, the lawsuit alleges. It's now unclear which part of the camera infringes on the patents, as no details have been made public. The latest lawsuit, however, strikes at the heart of one of Apple's most recent victories, its dual cameras. The lawsuit highlights how Corephotonics' dual aperture camera technology has two fixed-focal length lenses, including a wide angle and a telephoto lens, which is what Apple uses in its iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 8 Plus. Apple praised the start-up's technology but refused to license it, Corephotonics said, even suggesting it could infringe the latter's patents with little effect. Apple allegedly knew about the patents, but their lead negotiator said it would take years and millions of dollars before reaching an agreement, a spokesman of Coreophotonics noted.
Somehow, consumers also got roped into the lawsuit.
