Qualcomm now seeks a ban on some Apple iPhone Xs
Qualcomm and Apple continue their legal battle.
Qualcomm and Apple fight so much you wonder when those two crazy kids realize they're actually in love.
Until that happens they'll continue to fight.
Here's what's new, on November 30, Qualcomm filed a request With the US international trade commission, to ban the import and sale of certain iPhones including the iPhone 7, 8, and 10 that use Intel's modem.
In the US iPhones with Intel's modem run the AT&T and T Mobile networks.
iPhones that run on Verizon and Sprint use Qualcomm's modem and would not be included in the ban.
Why ban the Intel iPhones?
Because Qualcomm is accusing Apple of employing Qualcomm technologies into Intel modems.
But wait, there's more.
Qualcomm also filed two more lawsuits against Apple on Tuesday, November 29th.
In one suit, Qualcon alleges that the new iPhone copies the interface used by the Palm Pre in 2014.
In 2014 Qualcon purchased several patents from Palm, including tech related to its web OS user operating system and user interface.
One issue is card based mult-tasking Qualcomm says Apple copied Pon's patented cards schema starting with iOS 7 in 2013.
Qualcomm's complaints went on to mention a TechCrunch article that said, in the iPhone ten you're looking at a little ghost of the pre.
The second suit alleges that Apple infringed on Qualcomm's power saving patents and machine learning technology.
The whole Qualcomm Apple battle has been going on for a while.
