Federal Appeals Court Pauses Import Ban on Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2

Hartley Charlton, reporting for MacRumors:

Apple filed an emergency request to the United States Court of Appeals following President Biden’s decision to decline a veto on the sales ban, allowing it to take effect earlier this week. The Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit today accepted an interim stay while the court reviews Apple’s request for a full stay for the length of the appeal, effectively pausing the ban on Apple Watch imports for a brief period.

Apple, in a statement to 9to5Mac’s Chance Miller:

“We are thrilled to return the full Apple Watch lineup to customers in time for the new year. Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2, including the blood oxygen feature, will become available for purchase again in the United States at Apple Stores starting today and from apple.com tomorrow by 12pm PT.”

The Man wasn’t going to let Apple down.
