Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2 are back on sale — popular smartwatch models return to shelves after US court halts ban 3

Following the news that the U.S. has paused an International Trade Commission ban on imports of the Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2, the company has resumed sales of both through its retail stores, with its best Apple Watch models coming back to Apple.com later on Thursday. 

Apple is currently battling an ITC ban on the import and sale of both devices, after it was ruled to have infringed on patents owned by a company named Masimo relating to the blood oxygen monitoring technology in the Apple Watch. The company preemptively paused sales of both in anticipation that President Biden would not veto the measure. However, it has since appealed the ruling, and the US Court of Appeals has temporarily halted the ban. As such, Apple has brought both models back to its retail stores and will add them to its online outlet later today.
