Qualcomm aims to ban iPhone XS and iPhone XR in China too
15 December, 2018, 00:54 | Author: Lloyd Doyle
Apple claims that the ban applies to devices running iOS 11 and earlier, whereas their new devices have been updated to iOS 12.
"Based on the iPhone models we offer today in China, we believe we are in compliance", Apple said. Apple's update would presumably alter or remove some of the phones' features, but the company told Reuters the functionality related to the patents was "minor". Claiming patent infringement, Qualcomm convinced the Fuzhou Intermediate People's Court in China to issue a preliminary ban on sales of the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and the iPhone X. Qualcomm has requested that the Chinese courts explicitly include the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR in the injunction, counter to Apple's initial comments that the technologies in question wouldn't affect those models.
Qualcomm was not pleased by Apple's decision to merely update its phones, releasing a strongly worded statement of its own.
Meanwhile, Qualcomm is pushing even harder on Apple, apparently emblazoned by the preliminary injunctions win this week.
Qualcomm and Apple have been locked in legal battles over patent licensing fees for years. In all fairness, Apple isn't technically wrong. The Chinese government "may suffer hundreds of thousands of tax losses" from the iPhone ban because of lost taxes from sales of the devices, it said, citing estimates of 50 million units sold in the country in 2017. In order to overcome this scenario in China, the Cupertino giant is now set to push a new update to old iPhones starting early next week.
Meanwhile, Qualcomm has persuaded the US International Trade Commission to consider banning imports of iPhones that use Intel chips, Bloomberg reported on Thursday. There are more than a dozen lawsuits around the globe that both the companies are meddling with each other.
However, Apple does not mince words when describing how destructive an Apple sales ban in China would be.
