A recent German appeals court ruling has allowed Aple to restore the push mail notifications service to iCloud users in Germany.
Apple turned off iCloud's push mail services in the country last February, after a German court granted a permanent injunction against the service in a court case brought by Motorola, claiming that the functionality infringed one of its patents.
Since then, Apple's support page has informed iCloud users in Germany that push email service was unavailable.
But now according to an Apple service note posted on 1 October, iCloud's push mail features can once again be used by customers in Germany. Patent expert Florian Mueller wrote on its blog that a German court of appeals has temporarily stayed Motorola's injunction, in exchange for a €100m bond from Apple. The court will continue to examine the case, in order to come to a permanent decision.
