Qualcomm follows its own: now wants to ban the iPhone X in the US


Apple and Qualcomm have a movidita week, and their legal battle is getting uglier.
Yesterday we told you that a few days ago Apple had filed a lawsuit against Qualcomm, accusing the chip maker of having infringed eight of its patents on its Snapdragon 800 and 820 processors. A day later, Qualcomm also sued Apple accusing it of infringing five of patents relating to different technologies, and involving multiple iPhone models, among which were iPhone 8 and iPhone X .
Now, Qualcomm has gone even further, and has filed a complaint with the US International Trade Commission regarding five of its patents, calling for the importation of all iPhone X and iPhone 8/8 Plus units to be banned. AT & T and T-Mobile in the United States, that is, those that use Intel chips .

According to Qualcomm, there are a total of 16 patents that Apple is infringing with its latest iPhone models. Most of them cover technologies such as the aggregation of mobile operators, memory designs and power management functions, which are designed to help reduce battery usage, but in addition, the chip maker says that Apple is using a Depth-based image enhancement technique for Portrait mode, which violates one of its patents.
At this point it is already difficult to keep track of how many lawsuits the two companies have filed this year. We do not know if the International Trade Commission will agree to investigate the lawsuit that Qualcomm has filed against Apple, but it is increasingly clear that the legal battle between the two companies will continue for years, so for now there seems to be no danger that iPhones are banned in the near future.
