Qualcomm accuses Apple of sharing proprietary information with Intel

Apple could drop Qualcomm chips from iPhone from 2018 - report

The lawsuit was filed in California state court in San Diego and is another front to a massive legal battle between the two companies.

Next Qualcomm sues Apple, accusing them of failing to abide by their software license, and additionally of using their unprecedented access to Qualcomm to benefit rival Intel. With that in mind, Apple apparently requires deeper access to Qualcomm's code in order to get the LTE chip communicating with the rest of the device, as well as networks. The chipmaker also says that an Apple engineer who was working with a competitor (still probably Intel) requested protected information about data download tech. Apple has accused its chip supplier of unfairly charging companies for using products from other manufacturers.

Qualcomm claim that Apple hasn't protected their software sufficiently, which they legally agreed to, and say Apple aren't allowing for a proper audit to review how the iPhone handles their software.

Perhaps not coincidentally, Qualcomm's lawsuit follows hot on the heels of a report that Apple is considering to drop its modems entirely.

In another U.S. case, Qualcomm alleges that it has six patents developed in the past four years that improve battery life in mobile devices and that 'Apple uses these technologies in its devices but is not paying for them'.

Shah said that these statements were "materially false", "misleading" and "failed to disclose adverse facts pertaining to Qualcomm's business, operational and financial results, which were known to [Qualcomm] or recklessly disregarded by them".

In contrast, revenue from Qualcomm's licensing business fell 36 percent to $1.21 billion in the quarter ended September 24.
