Qualcomm says it has scored an important victory in its long-running global patent battle with Apple over patent rights. According to Qualcomm, a Chinese court ruled that several recent iPhone models infringe multiple Qualcomm software patents and has ordered a nationwide ban on iPhone sales
After an injunction filed in China just the news in the continuing rugged trade relationships between China and the United States was awarded. The injunction claims that Apple has broken two patents that are being used to control the editing/resizing of app direction and photos via touchscreen on certain models. Although the XS, XS Max and XR are secure from the ban, the sale and import of 6S Plus 6S, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus and X is illegal in China.

After submitting a petition for appeal, Apple released a formal announcement on the ban -“Qualcomm’s effort to prohibit our goods is another desperate move by a company whose illegal practices are under investigation by regulators around the world.”

According to Qualcomm’s US lawsuit, Apple’s goal was to buy mobile chips from Intel instead of depending on Qualcomm.

An Apple statement to AFP called Qualcomm’s effort to ban iPhone sales in China a “desperate move by a company whose illegal practices are under investigation by regulators around the world,” and added that “we will pursue all our legal options through the courts”.
