Qualcomm asks court to block sale, manufacturing of iPhones in China

Qualcomm asks court to block sale, manufacturing of iPhones in China

Qualcomm is aiming to hit Apple in the biggest pouch possible by filing for a sales and manufacturing injunction on iPhones in China, the company has told Bloomberg. The product provides nearly two-thirds of Apple's revenue. "Apple employs technologies invented by Qualcomm without paying for them", Trimble added.

Update: Qualcomm's suits pertain to three non-standard essential patents and the claims were filed in a Beijing court on September 29.

Apple is now rushing to manufacture as many iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X models during its busiest sales period of the year.

The inventions "are a few examples of the many Qualcomm technologies that Apple uses to improve its devices and increase its profits", Trimble said.

But his absence will soon be offset by the return of Laurent Koscielny , who is closing on a comeback from an Achilles injury. He didn't play in the first game, and we lost him in the second game against Azerbaijan at home.

This legal battle kicked off in January, when Apple filed a lawsuit claiming that Qualcomm was holding payments for ransom.

Qualcomm has countered with a patent suit and argued that Cupertino, California-based Apple encouraged regulators from South Korea to the U.S.to take action against it based on false testimony. The deal now in place still requires that Apple pay a fee regardless of whether the phone includes a Qualcomm chip, though. The Greater China region accounted for 22.5 percent of Apple's $215.6 billion sales in its most recent financial year.

Apple and Qualcomm did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Between the $2 billion in licensing fees Apple is refusing to pay and the $773 million fine from Taiwan's Fair Trade Commission, Qualcomm is now looking at an empty dinner plate. That's about $2 billion a year in highly profitable revenue, according to analyst estimates, and the chipmaker was forced to lower earnings forecasts.
