Apple vs. Qualcomm… again!

It seems as if Qualcomm tries to squeeze out
money from Apple wherever possible. Their
newest lawsuit case is about 31 million US$
for three patent infringements.

According to different sources, the lawsuit is based upon the following statement:

The damages are for iPhones sold from July 2017 and contain chips used by Intel, which replaced Qualcomm as a components supplier. In 2016, the company started using Intel modems in some models of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Now, Apple has opted for Intel’s modems over Qualcomm’s in all its latest phones.

This means that Qualcomm demands damage payments of up to 1.40 US$ per iPhone in Damages Apple has caused to Qualcomm during Apple’s switch from Qualcomm modems to Intel modems.

Although it seems to be the same case where Qualcomm once demanded 331 million US$ per iPhone model (in total almost one billion for 3 models in total!), this is just one sidecase and the big lawsuit for Apple is just moved to another time (about a month from now on.)

Then it’s again time for both to fight in court…
