US court upholds ban on Apple's Series 9 and Ultra 2 smartwatches in a patent dispute with Masimo. 

Ban includes restrictions on the import of the disputed Apple Watch models. 

Apple plans to release watches without the disputed blood oxygen feature to comply with the ruling. 

Dispute involves accusations of staff poaching and technology theft by Masimo. 

Apple disagrees with the patent violation claims but is complying with the ruling. 

Masimo's CEO sees the decision as a victory for intellectual rights. 

Apple surpasses Samsung, claiming the lion's share of the global smartphone market for the first time in 12 years.
