Apple’s battle with Qualcomm shows no sign of slowing down. Just in the last few days Apple filed a counterclaim against Qualcomm. The company has now seemingly retaliated with three more patent claims back at Apple. Additionally, they are looking to ban the iPhone 8 and iPhone X from sale in the US.
Tensions between Apple and Qualcomm have been on the rise, which has in part caused Apple to look elsewhere for the iPhone’s upcoming 5G modem. Apple is aiming to include 5G in the iPhone by 2019-2020, which means they are getting close to choosing a manufacturer.
