    Last December, Qualcomm filed a second complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission seeking a ban on U.S. imports of the Apple iPhone.

    Nobody knows what the 'R' in Apple's new iPhone XR stands for - and the latest theory is that even Apple doesn't know

    2 monthes ago - By Business Insider

    Apple hasn't explained what the 'R' and 'S' stand for in its latest iPhone lineup, the iPhone XS and XR.
