Qualcomm files new patent complaints against Apple

These claims were first reported by Reuters. (NASDAQ:AAPL) marked a countersuit against QUALCOMM, Inc. More specifically, Apple believes it owns several battery life patents which Qualcomm has incorporated into the Snapdragon design, which is then being used to power the devices of Apple's competitor's devices.

The legal bickering between Apple and Qualcomm shows no signs of backing down. Apple denied the claims and alleged that Qualcomm's patents were invalid.

The firm is alleging that it owns at least eight patents related to battery life that Qualcomm has violated, including patents related to making sure that each part of the phone's processor draws only minimum power needed to function, powering down parts of the processor when not needed, and ensuring that sleep and wake functions work better for the user.

United States chipmaker Qualcomm filed three new patent infringement complaints against Apple, marking yet another development in a wide-ranging legal war between the two companies. It's because Qualcomm says Apple isn't paying royalties on technologies that it says it played a key role in developing - like depth-sensing cameras and saving battery power. Unless the two settle their differences out of court, it may take years until we hear final verdicts in these patent lawsuits - and these trials are bound to become even more complicated. Samsung and Google have not been named in the counterclaims.

The company's request to the International Trade Commission could get iPhones like the ones with Intel chips blocked from being sold in the U.S. In a statement to the ITC, Apple said it wouldn't raise iPhone prices because of lower supply and high demand. In a related suit, Qualcomm sued the contract manufacturers that make Apple's phones, but Apple joined in to defend them.
