This was filed in response to a complaint by Qualcomm in July which accused Apple of infringing patents that "enable high performance in a smartphone while extending battery life".
Qualcomm has filed a new lawsuit in the US District Court inn the Southern District of California. the company is alleging that Apple has infringed on five Qualcomm patents.
In its new patent infringement cases, the chipmaker alleges that Apple infringes upon 16 of its patents related to bandwidth technology, power saving, photo editing and technology from dual-camera setups. Yes, it really looks like Qualcomm is going after the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 7. Qualcomm apparently now owns patents covering that interface, as well as other technology first developed at Palm. Apple accuses Qualcomm of overcharging for its intellectual property and of anti-competitive behaviour. Another complaint was filed to ban the import of iPhones using Intel chips due the alleged patent violations.
The complex patent dispute between Apple and Qualcomm took another twist this week with three filings being made on Wednesday, November 29.
"All of these Palm inventions - owned by Qualcomm - have vastly improved the functionality of mobile devices and the user experience, and all of them are widely found in Apple products without license or permission", Qualcomm argued in its lawsuit.
Both the giants are locking horns with each other by suing in back to back lawsuits, and Apple has completely declined to comment on the issue. This would prevent the device from being sold on AT&T and T-Mobile. Apple said the chipmaker was using the lawsuit to "extend its monopoly" in the market by asking the International Trade Commission to exclude its "only remaining competitor". The complaint was particularly limited to devices using Intel modems instead of those built by Qualcomm and its sub-contractors.
The iPhone maker added that it began seeking those patents years before Qualcomm started seeking the "patents it asserts against Apple in this case". Almost a year ago, Apple filed a $1 billion suit against Qualcomm and proceeded to cut off royalty payments while encouraging its suppliers to do the same.
