Apple introduced several new logos for some of its apps and icons when they launched the iOS 11. But unfortunately, one of the updated icons seems to be a rip-off of the logo of another company, which is now suing the tech giant for it.
Chinese clothing company Kon has filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Apple, claiming that the smartphone maker’s App Store logo resembles too closely to their own. And Kon does have a point, considering that the two logos indeed look a lot like each other. The two consist of three lines intersecting one another to form an A. One notable difference: Kon’s has flat edges while Apple’s has rounded edges.
According to the doc filed in the Beijing People’s Court, the clothing brand is demanding financial compensation as well as a public apology from Apple. They additionally want Apple to stop selling products that has the App Store logo. Apple has yet to respond to the suit, while a judgement is expected to be made in the next couple of weeks.
The new App Store logo is applicable to iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra compatible devices.
