๐Ÿ”— Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2 Ban Takes Effect; Apple Appeals

The ITCโ€™s ruling was subject to a potential veto by U.S. President Biden by December 25th, but today, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative issued a statement that it has decided against vetoing the ITC ruling, meaning that the ruling is now final.

It seems odd to me that Apple was expecting a reprieve from the White House over this patient dispute with Masimo. Issuing a veto looks like choosing one US company over another. Doesnโ€™t seem like good political optics to me. Maybe it seemed to Apple it was worth a shot. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ
