Shulou( Report--, December 15 (Xinhua) the legal dispute over Apple's Corellium has finally come to an end after years of repeated sawing.

The dispute dates back to 2019, when Apple sued Corellium, alleging that it sold virtual iOS devices without authorization.

The US Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit ruled in May that Corellium's CORSEC simulator was protected by the principle of fair use in copyright law.

The court agreed with Corellium that the virtual machine running iOS is for security research purposes only.

A panel of three judges said Corellium's products "promote scientific progress through security research on important operating systems". The court added that iOS is "functional operating software that does not belong to the core of copyright".
