Qualcomm sued by Apple over patent violation with Snapdragon processors

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 two tech companies have been locked in heated legal battles for months now about various patent complaints, such as the wireless communication technology pioneered by Qualcomm. Qualcomm has now pulled out some old Palm patents in an attempt to get the ITC to ban Apple's fresh iPhone 8 and iPhone X.

The lawsuits ask for unspecified payments from Apple for the alleged patent infringement and for the court to make Apple stop using those technologies. The patents in question relate to technologies that regulate power usage by turning off parts of the processor when they are not in use.

Qualcomm and Apple's tit for tat legal battle continues yet again this week with a series of new filings from Qualcomm, one of which seeks to ban some iPhone X sales in the US. The rhetoric has been strong too, in this complaint, Qualcomm says that Apple's products "would lose much of their consumer appeal" without Qualcomm technologies.

The complex patent dispute between Apple and Qualcomm took another twist this week with three filings being made on Wednesday, November 29.

Qualcomm on Wednesday sued Apple again, alleging that several iPhones, including 2017 and 2016 models, violate several Qualcomm inventions related to cellular connectivity, power efficiency, and 3D imagery. Apple cam eout and filed a lawsuit against Qualcomm making similar accusations and continued with those claims as it attacked Qualcomm all over the globe.

In particular, Qualcomm points to the iPhone X's multitasking interface and its similarities to the interface webOS used to use. As we previously mentioned, Apple is getting a little pissed off and reportedly has been designing the 2018 iPhone models to run without Qualcomm's modem chips. This would prevent the device from being sold on AT&T and T-Mobile. Apple has denied infringing on any of Qualcomm's patents, saying such patents were invalid.
