Apple countersuit alleges Qualcomm infringed battery life patents for Snapdragon 820, 800

Apple files for yet another flip phone patent	 	 	 			Apple is once again hinting that the world could one day see a foldable iPhone

Discovered by Apple Insider, the new complaint says Apple infringed five patents.

Interestingly, Qualcomm has sought the "exclusion order" only against iPhones that use Intel's modems, not the ones that run Qualcomm chips.

Apple recently answered Qualcomm's accusations of infringing on its patents with its own countersuit about the chipmaker infringing on the iPhone maker's patents.

Qualcomm has yet to respond to the filing, but it's already fairly clear where the San Diego company stands on the matter. In addition, Qualcomm is seeking for Apple to stop using those technologies in their devices.

The chipmaker in its new patent infringement claims that many of Apple's smartphones ranging from the iPhone 7 to iPhone X have infringed upon 16 of its patents related to bandwidth technology, carrier aggregation, memory designs, power saving methods, phone's actual interfaces, photo editing, technology from dual-camera setups, and even camera autofocus. For as per the latest on this, Qualcomm has accused Apple of infringing on three more of its patents, bringing the total number of patent infringements claims against the iPhone maker at 16.

"All of these Palm inventions - owned by Qualcomm - have vastly improved the functionality of mobile devices and the user experience, and all of them are widely found in Apple products without license or permission", Qualcomm argued in its lawsuit.

"You can't react that quickly to file lawsuits", Rosenberg said.

Apple has denied the claims that it violated Qualcomm's battery life patents and alleged that Qualcomm's patents were invalid, a common move in such cases.

The Apple patents involve ensuring each part of a phone's processor draws only the minimum power needed, turning off parts of the processor when they are not needed and making sleep and wake functions work better.

The counterclaim which was presented by Apple claims that the Snapdragon 800 and 820 processors from Qualcomm. Over the four-day shopping period, buyers purchased about 6 million iPhone X units.

AT&T and T-Mobile sell models of the latest iPhone that use the Intel model.

"Apple began seeking those patents years before Qualcomm began seeking the patents it asserts against Apple in this case", Apple wrote in its filing.
