Qualcomm files new patent complaints v Apple

Qualcomm has filed three new patent infringement complaints against Apple — saying there were 16 more of its patents that Apple was using in its iPhones, Reuters reported.

The new complaints are just the the latest development in a long-standing patent dispute between the two companies.

The new complaints follow Apple’s countersuit on Wednesday against Qualcomm which alleged that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon mobile phone chips infringed on Apple patents.

Apple declined to comment on the new cases, referring to its earlier claims in its Wednesday filing that the company has developed its own technology and patents to power its iPhones, Reuters reported.
