Motorola has won a legal challenge against Apple in Germany, winning two patent infringements against the technology company, which could see a European ban against iOS devices such as the iPad and iPhone.

According to Gizmodo, the case, brought by Motorola Mobility in April, has led to the granting of an injunction against all products which infringe its copyright, including all of Apple's iOS products, which are said to flout the order due to them 'performing a countdown function during a mobile-originated transfer for a packet radio system' as stated in a court document.

"We will continue to take all necessary steps to protect our intellectual property, as the company's patent portfolio and licensing agreements with companies both in the US and around the world are critical to our business," said Scott Offer, senior vice-president and general counsel of Motorola Mobility," said a Motorola spokesperson.

"We have been negotiating with Apple and offering them reasonable licensing terms and conditions since 2007, and will continue our efforts to resolve our global patent dispute as soon as practicable."

Apple are expected to appeal the ruling which allows Motorola the option of enforcing a ban against its rival's products.
