Immersion Corporation, one of the leading developer of touch feedback technology has filed a patent infringement complaint against Apple with the US International Trade Commission.
According to the complaint, Immersion Corporation claims that Apple’s iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and Apple Watch models infringe some of the patents related to haptic feedback systems.
Apple had announced Taptic engine with Apple Watch and 12-inch Macbook. The feature provides haptic feedback using force sensors integrated with the display or touchpad of the device. Apple also transformed that tech for its iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus calling it Force Touch.

Force Touch was undoubtedly the most important thing on new iPhones. It uses haptic feedback with pressure sensitive display. A gentle press on the display gives peak while the deep press opens up the image or file completely.
“Immersion and its employees have worked diligently for over 20 years to invent solutions and build an ecosystem of content and playback devices that enable realistic and rich digital experiences. Touch matters, as it informs, excites and humanizes the digital world we interact with every day.
