share on:

US chipmaker Qualcomm has reportedly filed three new patent infringement complaints against Apple Inc, marking violations of 16 different patents against iPhone maker which includes “super-premium” in iPhone X.

The case was filed in a California court on Thursday.

One of the cases includes the banning of iPhones with Intel chips, authorities said.

The reports said, “The chip-maker also plans to submit a new complaint to the US International Trade Commission”.

Following this, the other two cases include civil patent infringement lawsuits.

Qualcomm General Counsel Don Rosenberg said in a statement, “You can’t react that quickly to file lawsuits. We were in the process of filing three new district court cases in San Diego, and one new ITC case in Washington, D.C.”.

It was reported that in July, Qualcomm accused Apple of infringing several patents related to helping smartphones get better battery life.

It was learned that some of the Qualcomm patents were previously issued between 2015 and 2017.

However, Apple is designing iPhones and iPads for the year 2018, which will not feature chips for Qualcomm.
