Apple and Samsung’s US-based litigation is on track for a trial next July. Depositions of some of Apple’s key iPhone inventors will be taking place “relatively soon,” notes “Edible Apple” (

The inventors on Samsung’s radar include Jonathan Ive, Douglas Satzger, Shin Nishibori, and Christopher Stringer. Originally, these depositions were supposed to be completed by November 1. Samsung in mid-October, however, filed a motion seeking an extension since the witnesses would be unavailable before then, notes “Edible Apple.”
