The back and forth legal battle between Apple and Qualcomm picked up some steam during the last two days. Qualcomm goes further in a claim with the US International Trade Commission, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune, where it asks for imports of iPhone Xs using modems from its rival, Intel, to the banned, which would prevent the device from being sold on AT&T and T-Mobile (that is, unless Apple started buying modems for those phones from Qualcomm).
These filings were issued yesterday, shortly after Apple had filed its own patent infringement lawsuit against Qualcomm.
The report explains that Apple has already patented a technology that ensures each part of the phone's processor consumes minimum power, to essentially offer improved battery management. Qualcomm has demanded a court trial and an injunction on the infringing devices including the iPhone X, iPhone 8 series, and the iPhone 7 series in the US. Things have worsened to such an extent that Apple is said to be planning to ditch Qualcomm modems from all its future products including the iPhones and iPads. Intel is well-positioned to become the main manufacturer of mobile chips for future iPhones if Apple and Qualcomm end up terminating their partnership.
