Apple recently saw an import ban on older iPhones and iPads vetoed, and now the company is trying to turn the tables on Samsung by asking a U.S. appeals court tomorrow to block sales of certain Samsung devices. Bloomberg reports that Apple will try to block the sale of Samsung models that have been found to violate patents covering the “iPhone’s look and features.” A U.S. trade agency will then determine if any Samsung imports will be stopped. The U.S. International Trade Commission ruled that Apple violated a Samsung patent, and an import ban was to block the AT&T iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, and the first- and second- generation 3G iPads from being imported to the U.S., but the ban was recently overturned by the Obama administration.
