Qualcomm wants Apple to stop production and sales of iPhones in China

Qualcomm wants Apple to stop production and sales of iPhones in China”

The majority of Apple's iPhones are manufactured in China, and Qualcomm has filed lawsuits in that country that seek to have production halted and ban all sales.

While a sales ban would definitely hurt Apple, a production cutoff would cripple the company's supply of smartphones globally, since most iPhones are made in China. Apple shares gave up some gains from earlier on Friday, while Qualcomm stock maintained small losses. Qualcomm's suit says that Apple infringed on a trio of patents covering Force Touch and power management.

"Apple employes technologies invented by Qualcomm without paying for them."

The inventions "are a few examples of the many Qualcomm technologies that Apple uses to improve its devices and increase its profits", Trimble said.

The two companies are months into a legal dispute that centers on Qualcomm's technology licensing business.

Although Apple doesn't use Snapdragon processors in its iPhones, it's still on the hook for numerous patents Qualcomm owns.

Qualcomm officially filed for this lawsuit against Apple on September 29, but the Beijing court in which it was issued has not yet made the exact details available to the public.
