Qualcomm accuses Apple of sharing proprietary information with Intel

03 November, 2017, 01:10 | Author: Delbert Rhodes

Apple fired the first salvo in the prolonged legal battle this past January when it filed suit over what it claimed were unfair royalties required by Qualcomm.

We asked Qualcomm for a statement, but the company declined to comment on the speculation that Apple may stop using its chips. In July, Qualcomm filed a complaint with the United States International Trade Commission alleging that Apple has infringed on six Qualcomm patents that "enabled important features and functions in iPhones". Qualcomm are claiming Apple breached their contracted agreement, which was arranged regarding the software necessary for mobile chips to interact with the rest of an Apple handset.

In January, Apple sued Qualcomm for almost $1 billion for charging a hefty price for royalties on technologies that Apple said the chipmaker should not be associated with.

NY truck attack treated as terrorism; 8 dead, multiple injured
President Trump decried the attack on Twitter. "And then all of the sudden, four shots went off and we all just started running". Police said they had mobilized to the scene in Lower Manhattan and that one person was in custody, giving no further details.

It's already attempted to in the past, as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus carried both Intel and Qualcomm chips, as did this year's iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. The chipmaker also says that an Apple engineer who was working with a competitor (still probably Intel) requested protected information about data download tech. Apple's decision about next year's products comes after the San Diego-based Qualcomm withheld software needed to test chips in prototypes, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The two companies are embroiled in a worsening dispute over technology licensing fees that Qualcomm charges for patents that cover the basics of how mobile phone systems work.

Apple reportedly has until June to make its decision, although that's a bit late in the game, considering that the Cupertino company usually announces its new iPhones in September.
