Apple to design power chips in-house as early as 2018: Sources

In the latest installment of the saga, Apple has filed a countersuit against Qualcomm claiming the Snapdragon mobile phone chips infringe on Apple's patents, according to Reuters.

The patents actually involve more efficient use of a phones battery. More specifically, Apple singles out the Snapdragon 800 and Snapdragon 820 processors. It's all very complicated, but this is common practice in the courts; deny a claim and then put forward a paper trail which proves there was no basis for the claim in the first place.

Asked about the joint military training, Ng said, "I hope this will continue for long". We will exercise and patrol in your waters as do in ours.

Qualcomm is accused of violating at least eight Apple patents in its Snapdragon 800 and 820 processors, which are used in both Samsung and Google Pixel phones ... These patents detail features like ensuring that the processor only draws the minimum power required to achieve a task.

"Apple's patents are critical to what consumers value in a handset - cutting-edge functionality with superior battery life", said the company in the lawsuit. The iPhone maker states that it filed for battery life patents long before Qualcomm went through with its own battery life patents, and further states that Qualcomm's infringement claims appear "to be a blatant effort to take credit for the innovation of others".
