It’s a day that ends in “y” and Apple just lost a patent suit, so that means it’s court time again.

Haptics technology company Immersion has filed suit against Apple and both AT&T and AT&T Mobility over what three patents it claims the defendants infringed.

U.S. Patent No. 8,619,051 regards “Haptic Feedback System with Stored Effects,” No. 8,773,356 is on “Method and Apparatus for Providing Tactile Sensations” and No. 8,659,571 concerns Immersion’s “Interactivity Model for Shared Feedback on Mobile Devices”

Immersion believes the following products infringed upon those patents:

Products'051'356'571
iPhone 6XX
iPhone 6 PlusXX
iPhone 6sXXX
iPhone 6s PlusXXX
Apple WatchXX
Apple Watch SportXX
Apple Watch EditionXX

We aren’t sure where AT&T comes into this, though we presume that it affects the carrier’s variant of the seven products.

The company has over 2,100 patents either issued or pending in several countries.
