Auto parts manufacturer Aliexpress has been making noise for years about the way Apple is treating the iPhone 5S and 5C in the US.
But the company has not yet been able to make any sort of dent in the iPhones’ battery life.
Now, after a brief but intense battle with Apple, Aliev says it has succeeded in getting rid of the ‘buzzwords’ marks on its iPhones.
In a blog post, the company wrote that the marks were “not something we expected to see” on the new iPhones and that they were removed from the US on Thursday (September 29).
Aliexin said it had to do this because Apple “is not happy with what they call a ‘buddy’ feature”.
In the blog post the company also wrote that Apple’s decision “will likely affect” other smartphone manufacturers in the region.
Aliexpress said that it was the first step in removing the marks on the phones.
“After the initial tests, it was obvious that our customers and the wider world were not happy,” Aliexpression said.
The new iPhones will be manufactured in China and will be equipped with a new chipset.””
The reason we did this is because we believe that these marks are unnecessary and should be removed.
The new iPhones will be manufactured in China and will be equipped with a new chipset.”
The company did not give an exact timeframe for when the new devices would be shipped to customers.
As well as having to remove the buzzwords, Aliaxpress also removed some branding on the phone’s battery.
“In our experience, there is no need to have these branding marks on a smartphone, especially if you don’t use it in the first place,” Aliaxpress wrote.
“If you do, we suggest you leave them alone.” Read more
