Qualcomm sues Apple back; Piper Jaffray analyst predicts iPhone future

02 December 2017

These filings were issued yesterday, shortly after Apple had filed its own patent infringement lawsuit against Qualcomm.

Now Qualcomm has filed a new lawsuit against Apple and this on included their new iPhone X as well as other devices.

In the second complaint, Qualcomm stated Apple infringed a further six patents: United States numbers 8,971,861; 7,834,591; 8,768,865; 8,229,043; 8,447,132; and 9,024,418.

An Oscar Contender's Reviews Are So Good, They Broke A Record
For perspective, Citizen Kane , a film often mentioned in Greatest of All Time lists, is also at 100%, but with only 75 reviews. The movie now boasts a rare 100% score with 173 reviews and counting on an average rating of 8.9/10.

The dispute between Apple and Qualcomm over patents is part of a wide-ranging legal war between the two companies.

With this in mind it could take weeks before an investigation begins and months for action on the complaint. The iPhone-maker claims Qualcomm has infringed upon at least eight of its battery life patents.

In the latest escalation of the almost year-long legal battle, Qualcomm filed three complaints Wednesday in U.S. District Court alleging violations on 16 different Qualcomm patents by Apple, some related to RF transceivers and power-saving measures, some related to multi-touch displays and some related to the innovations of Palm.

The 16 patents in question relate to technologies ranging from RF transceivers and power-saving measures, multi-touch displays and, er, the user interface designed by Palm. Back in January, Apple filed a $1 billion lawsuit against the chip designer for abusing its taking undue advantage of its market dominance. That was in July, and the ban was sought on some iPad models as well. Qualcomm alleges that Apple's infringed it since iOS 7 debuted in 2013.

Apple said it is seeking unspecified damages from San Diego-based Qualcomm. The Snapdragon 800 and 820 were used in some of the most popular Android smartphones in 2015 and 2016.

"Apple began seeking those patents years before Qualcomm began seeking the patents it asserts against Apple in this case", the company wrote in its complaint. If the processor chip giant had its way, iPhone Xs from these carriers could be banned. That includes the latest iPhone 8 duo as well as the more in demand iPhone X now on offer from AT&T and T-Mobile.
