Apple finally resumes iOS push email in Germany

After being forced to switch off the service in February 2012, Apple has resumed push email in Germany. As GigaOm reports, Apple has confirmed that push is now reenabled through a note on its support site. Apple disabled push for all iOS devices last year after Motorola won a patent battle in German courts. The company continues to contest the decision, however, and in August won an interim decision during the appeal process, posting a €100 million ($136 million) bond to resume service as normal. According to Apple's support site, push is now enabled for Germans with iCloud, Yahoo, AOL, QQ, and NetEase email accounts.
