The latest iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR are not covered by this ban because they are all based on the Intel baseband.

Apple has filed an appeal and the ban will not take effect during the appeal period. Apple can continue to sell the above iPhone models. And Apple has circumvented the patent in iOS 12, and the current iPhone has been equipped with iOS 12 system. The iOS 12 installed capacity has been as high as 70%, and all devices currently on sale are pre-installed with iOS 12.
