Apple was, however, allowed to include Jelly Bean, a version of the Android operating system, only with regard to the Galaxy Nexus. Samsung does not have any design control over the content of Jelly Bean as it is a Google Android product that Samsung itself did not develop, the Judge said. "The court will not permit a sweeping amendment that might apply to devices other than those properly tied to Samsung," he added.

The court also allowed Apple to add 17 more Samsung products to its pen stylus claims. Apple had sought to add claims 1, 2, 4, 5 and 13 of U.S. Patent No. 5,666,502 to its infringement contentions for the devices because they could also be used with a stylus.
