In the latest chapter of the topsy-turvy lengthy legal battle between the two tech giants, Apple countersued Qualcomm, alleging the latter's Snapdragon mobile phone chips infringed on Apple's patents, according to Reuters.
It's been a quiet couple of weeks for Qualcomm and Apple, so we really should have expected another chapter in the courtroom tale.
The patents describe technologies that allow a certain part of a phone's processor to only draw the minimum power needed and turn off when it's not needed. Apple has also come out to say that Qualcomm selectively gained patents that covered technologies that are insight Apple products "much like a common patent troll". In its filing, Apple alleges that Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 and 820 processors, which power phones from Samsung and Google's Pixel phones, infringe on those patents. The iPhone maker states that it filed for battery life patents long before Qualcomm went through with its own battery life patents, and further states that Qualcomm's infringement claims appear "to be a blatant effort to take credit for the innovation of others".
Qualcomm filed its patent infringement lawsuit at the same time it filed a complaint with the US International Trade Commission seeking to ban the import of Apple iPhones that use competing Intel chips because of the alleged patent violations.
Qualcomm General Counsel Don Rosenberg said the timing of Qualcomm's lawsuits is coincidental to Apple's countersuit.
Qualcomm in November sued Apple over an alleged breach of a software agreement between the two companies. In a related suit, Qualcomm sued the contract manufacturers that make Apple's phones, but Apple joined in to defend them.
It is purely a coincidence that many of Qualcomm's chips find their way into Android smartphones.
