BRASILIA—Regulators in Brazil on Wednesday rejected Apple’s application to register its iPhone trademark in the country, having already recognized a local manufacturer’s claim to the name.

The Institute of Industrial Property (INPI) “denied Apple registration of the iPhone trademark,” the institute’s press office told AFP. The decision was officially published by the INPI.
