Qualcomm asks China to halt manufacture, sale of iPhones

13 Octobre 2017

Qualcomm Inc. filed lawsuits in China seeking to ban the sale and manufacture of iPhones in the country, the chipmaker's biggest shot at Apple Inc.so far in a sprawling and bitter legal fight, Bloomberg News reports.

Apple's ongoing legal battle with Qualcomm is heating up today in a serious way. It has since expanded that lawsuit on the heels of a Supreme Court ruling last month, arguing that the license agreements that give Qualcomm a cut of every iPhone manufactured are invalid. Qualcomm's suit in China is based on three non-standard essential patents that allegedly cover power management and touch-screen technology like Force Touch used in current iPhones.

Leicester City now sit 17th in the English topflight with just five points from seven games. West Brom are 10th in the league with nine points from seven league games.

"Apple employs technologies invented by Qualcomm without paying for them", says Qualcomm spokeswoman Christine Trimble.

Qualcomm officially filed for this lawsuit against Apple on September 29, but the Beijing court in which it was issued has not yet made the exact details available to the public. The inventions "are a few examples of the many Qualcomm technologies that Apple uses to improve its devices and increase its profits", Trimble claims.
