Apple fires back at Qualcomm in lawsuit over battery patents

The three lawsuits were filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California in San Diego. The complaint sought a ban on Apple's handsets that are powered by chips from rival manufacturer, Intel, based on the said patent violations.
The first complaint accused Apple of infringing U.S. patent numbers 8,683,362; 8,497,928; 7,844,037; and 9,203,940, relating to a range of technologies including those which allow multiple apps to run at once, camera focusing techniques and methods of responding to incoming calls and texts. In addition, Qualcomm is seeking for Apple to stop using those technologies in their devices.
With its new ITC complaint, Qualcomm is looking to include Apple's recently released iPhone 8 and iPhone X units in the potential ban for using competing Intel chips. The patents are related to power management in mobile CPUs, radio frequency transmitters and more.

Apple filed a new lawsuit against its chip supplier Qualcomm on Wednesday, claiming that the chip maker's range of chipsets also used in Android smartphones are in violation of Apple's patents.
Qualcomm filed its request to make buying an iPhone X more hard on Thursday, asking the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) to ban all imports of versions of the device that had Intel modems. The Cupertino company said its patents in question ensure that the processor uses only minimal power and turns off the parts that are not needed to save battery.
The counterclaim which was presented by Apple claims that the Snapdragon 800 and 820 processors from Qualcomm.
In better news for Apple, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says the iPhone X will lead to a longer "super cycle" and the company "may be increasingly well positioned to experience a strong multi-year iPhone trajectory". Carriers that sell the iPhone X with a modem provided by Qualcomm-available through Verizon, Sprint and sold as an unlocked device-would still be available. It means you will easily be able to get your hands on the iPhone X during the holiday shopping season.
