Qualcomm sues Apple back; Piper Jaffray analyst predicts iPhone future

But it has now revised its answer.

In its lawsuit, the iPhone maker had alleged that Qualcomm's Snapdragon mobile phone chips infringed on Apple patents.

In a new filing in the U.S. District Court in San Diego, Apple alleges at least eight of its patents related to battery life were infringed. Qualcomm today announced that it is seeking an import ban on select variants of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X - Apple's latest releases. These claims were first reported by Reuters. The other two cases are civil patent infringement lawsuits.

Qualcomm accuses Apple of violating 16 of its patents including power-saving tech and camera autofocus in devices from the iPhone 7 to the new premium iPhone X.

In the video, you can see one model pause her singing during the verse that should be off-limits to white listeners given history. Social media users have pointed out that there are no black people in the room, so the word should not have been used.

Apple claims in its suit that Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 and 820 processors - used in Samsung and Google phones - infringe Apple's patents.

Apple declined to comment on the new cases, referring to its earlier claims in its Wednesday filing that the company has developed its own technology and patents to power its iPhones.

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.

In January, Apple charged Qualcomm for patent royalty rebates of around $1 billion that latter purportedly withheld from Apple. Apple has refuted the assertions that it breached battery life patents of Qualcomm and charged that Qualcomm's patents were worthless, a common step in such instances. One of the cases is a companion civil lawsuit to a new complaint also filed Thursday with the ITC that seeks the same remedy of banning iPhones with Intel chips.
