Qualcomm sues Apple over software licensing, sharing code with Intel

Qualcomm sues Apple for breach of contract as battle over iPhone chips grows
The contract Apple allegedly broke surrounds software created to make Qualcomm chips work with other iPhone components, Bloombergfirst reported.
In its complaint, Qualcomm alleged that Apple was required under its contract to ensure that Apple engineers working with Qualcomm did not communicate details about Qualcomm chips to Apple engineers working on competing chips from Intel.
These are but new chapters in a long series of unfortunate events.
The two companies are embroiled in a worsening dispute over technology licensing fees that Qualcomm charges for patents that cover the basics of how mobile phone systems work. Qualcomm sent the same response to TechRadar, but referenced the WSJ's question. The company said it is "committed to supporting Apple's new devices" as it does for others in the industry.
Apple suedQualcomm in January 2017 for almost $1 billion, claiming that Qualcomm had "unfairly insisted on charging royalties for technologies they have nothing to do with". It widened its suppliers to include Intel for some versions of the iPhone beginning with the 7 model. Still, these results are a reflection of the toll that the legal battle between Qualcomm and Apple is taking.
Are you planning to line up for an iPhone X tomorrow?
With all of that uncertainty on the table, it's probable we'll have to wait another generation before we finally see a Qualcomm-free iPhone (if, of course, we ever do).
In Qualcomm's earnings report yesterday, the chipmaker revealed that full-year QTL segment sales had fallen 16% due to Apple and another unnamed licensee withholding royalty payments. We also contacted Apple, but did not receive a response.
