Qualcomm Wants iPhone X on AT&T and T-Mobile Networks to Be Banned Due to Patent Infringement

Qualcomm fires back at Apple with new batch of patent infringement suits

Qualcomm has filed three new patent infringment claims against Apple in US District Court, bringing the total to 16. The US International Trade Commission is now investigating Qualcomm's claims that iPhone imports and sales should be blocked in the country due to various infringements.

Cellular Insights notes that the performance gap between Qualcomm and Intel was more pronounced past year between -97dBm and -117dBm - suggesting that Apple put a heavier hand into tuning performance to make it seem like both versions performed identically to users.

The new complaints represent the latest development in a long-standing dispute and follows Apple's countersuit on Wednesday against Qualcomm, which alleged that Qualcomm's Snapdragon mobile phone chips infringed on Apple patents.

Last year, Apple used Qualcomm and Intel modem chips on the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus.

According to Qualcomm, Apple uses technologies that Qualcomm first marketed in the 1990s.

Second Georgia player arrested alongside LB Natrez Patrick on Saturday night
Whether Stanley gets the same punishment remains to be seen, but it doesn't appear he has been arrested during his Georgia career. He was suspended from Georgia for four games and returned to play against Auburn in the regular season.

The three cases filed Thursday were all filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California in San Diego.

"Qualcomm has struggled mightily to maintain its monopoly position through intimidation, litigation, and manipulation, for all the reasons set forth in the co-pending matter before this Court", Apple stated in its countersuit.

The complaint continued, "Notably, all of Qualcomm's asserted patents were filed and prosecuted well after the iPhone was introduced". In addition to this, Qualcomm is challenging Apple's patent usage at the International Trade Commission (ITC). Apple claims that Qualcomm owes it $1 billion and that Qualcomm refuses to license its standard essential apps in a fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory manner.

Surprisingly Qualcomm is blaming Apple for pretty much exactly what they were sued for. In the countersuit, Apple has claimed that Qualcomm's Snapdragon line of chipsets infringes on their patents.
