Apple to reduce production of new iPhone generation again

Adjust Comment Print

Tension between Qualcomm and Apple escalated last week, after the chipmaker won a preliminary injunction preventing the sale of older iPhones in China.

As we noted earlier today, Apple hoped to circumvent the possible iPhone ban in Germany by making an iOS modification in the country, which it believed stopped it from infringing on at least one of the patents named in the suit. Their tactics, in the courts and their everyday business, are harming innovation and harming consumers.

Apple went on to add, "Qualcomm insists on charging exorbitant fees based on work they didn't do". Just like China, Apple has again said that it'll appeal against the injunction. According to judge Matthias Zigann, the iPhones containing those third-party parts violate Qualcomm's patents around envelope tracking, a feature that helps phones preserve battery while sending and receiving wireless transmissions.

The German sales ban is for iPhones models that use Intel and Qorvo components which infringe on Qualcomm patents.

Apple had previously faced a similar ruling in China, issuing a software update in hopes to satisfy the court while it appeals the decision.

The ban does not cover the new iPhone XS, iPhone XS Plus or iPhone XR, which were not yet available when Qualcomm filed its lawsuit.

The court said it had to go with Qualcomm's explanation of how the chip worked as Apple would not give details on its functioning, citing the industrial secrecy interests of its supplier. As a result, the court granted Qualcomm's request for an injunction against the affected models. Not only have sales of some of the company's newest smartphones been down, but its long-running legal spats with Qualcomm have started to take a turn for the worst.

The technology giant did say, however, that all of its phone models would still be available from mobile phone carriers and resellers.

A Qualcomm spokesperson did not immediately have a statement. It also means Apple must pay monetary damages, which will be determined at a later date.
