The manufacturer of processors Qualcomm appealed to the US International Trade Commission with a request to stop the importation of new iPhones into the country, as well as to stop sales of already imported smartphones. Reports about it The Verge.
Qualcomm believes that Apple infringes six patents of the manufacturer on technologies that allow to extend the battery life of the device.
Qualcomm’s inventions are at the heart of every iPhone and go far beyond modern technology or mobile communication standards. Apple continues to use Qualcomm technology, refusing to pay for it.Advertisement
In January 2017, Apple sued Qualcomm, accusing the manufacturer of monopolism. The company from Cupertino believes that the defendant overstated the prices of its chips and forced the iPhone manufacturer to overpay $ 1 billion.
In turn, Qualcomm in May 2017 filed a lawsuit against Foxconn and three other Apple suppliers, accusing them of not paying royalties for using proprietary technologies.
