According to a media report, Corephotonics filed the lawsuit in a federal court in northern California where Apple is headquartered. It accused that the two iPhone models copied its patented telephoto lens design, optical zoom method and a method for intelligently fusing images from the wide-angle and telephoto lenses to improve image quality. 
Newly-launched “super-premium” iPhone X also has dual-camera system but was not part of the lawsuit as of now, the report added. “Corephotonics claims that Apple was approached regarding a partnership. Apple allegedly praised the technology, but refused a license, and “expressed contempt” about Corephotonics patent filings,” AppleInsider reported.
