New Qualcomm lawsuit claims Apple shared confidential code with Intel

03 November 2017

Bloomberg reports that Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) filed a new lawsuit against Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) yesterday accusing the iPhone maker of using its chip software access to benefit Intel (NASDAQ:INTC). "Apple copied an Intel engineer in the email for information". Qualcomm has said Apple is mischaracterizing its practices.

According to Bloomberg, the new suit alleges that Apple refuses to allow Qualcomm to audit Apple's handling of the chipmaker's proprietary software, something the company says is in the current contract. Qualcomm's move was likely prompted by Apple's recent $1 billion lawsuit against the chipmaker in which it claimed it has "nothing to do with" technologies that Qualcomm was seeking royalty payments for. Earlier this month, Qualcomm filed suits in Beijing to ban iPhone production in China.

However, he apologized "if I did behave then as [Rapp] describes. for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior". Rapp made the allegation in an interview with BuzzFeed News that was published Sunday.

In its United States case, Qualcomm alleges that it has six patents developed in the past four years that improve battery life in mobile devices and that 'Apple uses these technologies in its devices but is not paying for them'. Still, these results are a reflection of the toll that the legal battle between Qualcomm and Apple is taking.
