German appeals court lifts injuction on iCloud push email

updated 02:59 pm EDT, Tue September 3, 2013

Feature should return in near future

The Karlsruhe Higher Regional Court has stayed enforcement of an injunction blocking push email for German iCloud users, reports say. The injunction stems from a lawsuit filed by Motorola, and was originally issued by the Mannheim Regional Court in February 2012. With the Karlsruhe ruling, push email should return as soon as Apple can post a bond, meant to ensure that Motorola can collect damages should it win the related lawsuit.

The injunction prevents people using Apple's Mail app from automatically receiving new email from iCloud, Yahoo, AOL, QQ, or NetEase accounts. As a workaround, Apple recommends setting iOS to fetch new mail at regular intervals. Contact and calendar data is still being pushed automatically.
