There are hundreds if not thousands of smartphones in the markets across China that looks exactly like iPhone, but costs just a fraction of the price.

In fact every second Chinese phone manufacturer will have at least one, if not more, device in their line-up that has ripped-off the iPhone's design.

But the news is, some random Chinese mobile company has accused the Apple of stealing its design!

By 'random' we mean literally random! To start with the company is called 100+ (that is actually its name). We jumped into the unknown depths of Google to find an actual devices by this company, and it is real.

So according to 100+ the design of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were inspired its ‘100C’ smartphone.

100+ has managed to stop Apple selling iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in Beijing!

According to the Beijing Intellectual Property Office, the reason the sales ban is because "it would be difficult for buyers to tell the ‘minute differences’ between the two phones".

In 2012, Apple was sued by GooPhone, a Hong Kong-based company who said the iPhone 5 was originally their design.

Also earlier this year Beijing-based tech company Xintong Tiandi Technology managed to win a case against Apple in China to sell bags and cases under IPHONE brand.
