There are three new complaints that Qualcomm is throwing at Apple.

Qualcomm Inc said on Thursday it filed three new patent infringement complaints against Apple Inc, saying there were 16 more of its patents that Apple was using in its iPhones.

Qualcomm is thus praying for an injunction from the court that would bar Apple from selling the GSM version of 2017 iPhone models; iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X because they do not feature the Qualcomm -made modem chip inside.

The dispute between Apple and Qualcomm over patents is part of a wide-ranging legal war between the two companies.

Qualcomm in November sued Apple over an alleged breach of a software agreement between the two companies.

The dispute between Apple and Qualcomm began earlier this year, when Apple objected to the royalties Qualcomm charges for the use of its patents in mobile devices. Apple has also been reported to start designing mobile devices that will allow it to get rid of Qualcomm LTE chips indefinitely, hence inciting more backlash from the latter. Apple's countersuit, filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court, Southern District of California, claims that Qualcomm is wrongly using some of Apple's battery life technologies.

Separately, Qualcomm is facing a lawsuit from the U.S. Federal Trade Commission over numerous same pricing practices Apple names in its complaints. In the countersuit, Apple has claimed that Qualcomm's Snapdragon line of chipsets infringes on their patents.

"Qualcomm has struggled mightily to maintain its monopoly position through intimidation, litigation, and manipulation, for all the reasons set forth in the co-pending matter before this Court", Apple stated in its countersuit. In these complaints, Qualcomm claims that Apple has been infringing on 16 of its patents which are being used in the iPhones.

All this is taking place in a technology market and ecosystem that is changing rapidly. In the meantime, processor rival Broadcom last month launched an unsolicited attempt to acquire Qualcomm.
