According to AppleInsider the lawsuit has been filed in the lawsuit-friendly Eastern District Court of Texas. Seven's suit asserts multiple Apple technologies are in violation of owned intellectual property. From Apple's Push Notification Service to automatic App Store downloads, background refresh and iPhone's "Low Battery" warning, the legal action covers a suite of current iOS and macOS features, as well as the devices that run those operating systems. The plaintiff wants a jury trial in the matter.
