Apple-Qualcomm legal dispute slows down iPhone's 5G adoption

Apple-Qualcomm legal dispute slows down iPhone's 5G adoption”

Furthermore, the Apple COO has put on record that Qualcomm charges 5 times more than usual for its chips.

Qualcomm counters that the fees are relatively small for technology that's so fundamental to phones and claims that the patents it owns underpin how modern, high-speed data networks work.

Qualcomm said in October 2017 that it had already "tested and released to Apple" modems that could be used in the new iPhones and that it was committed to working as a supplier for Apple. "We have been unable to get them to support us on new design wins past that time [that Apple filed suit]", said Williams according to Apple Insider.

How much can Netflix raise its prices before customers cancel in droves?
Wall Street analysts have believed Netflix has demonstrable leeway to safely raise fees without the risk of significant backlash. Finding the balance between low prices and high content investment has been a key challenge for Netflix executives.

Qualcomm's latest patent lawsuit against Apple has been dismissed by a German court on Tuesday, with the regional Mannheim court saying the patent in question was not violated by the installation of its chips in Apple's smartphones, Reuters reported. "This has been a challenge". So whereas Qualcomm was demanding a $7.50 royalty payment for each iPhone sold, Apple believed the royalty payment should be more in the range of $1.50.

The dispute began about two years ago, when Apple accused its supplier Qualcomm in a lawsuit brought by excessive and unfair License requirements for patents. However, Williams said, "We needed their supply of chips". "We would have loved to continue to have access to Qualcomm's tech".

I don't doubt that this is true, as far as it goes. And the most recent line of 2018 iPhones came exclusively with Intel chips. That's a lot less clear.

He has said he'll hold back federal dollars for fire disasters before, but has not executed on that threat. Daryl Osby, the Los Angeles County Fire Chief, said in November: "We're in extreme climate change now".

By now it's old news that the iPhone XS lineup and the iPhone XR use Intel chips under the hood, rather than a mix of Intel and Qualcomm.

Blevins said that Apple is considering MediaTek and Samsung as potential supply chain partners for its 5G devices. The regulatory agency called Apple chief operating officer Jeff Williams as a witness to help show that Qualcomm has abused its global dominance in the smartphone market.

It's not clear yet whether the FTC has managed to make a strong enough case but truth be told it doesn't look good for Qualcomm.

Windows 10 Finally Pulls Ahead of Windows 7
Windows 10 has finally become Microsoft's most popular operating system now, almost three and a half years after its release. Fast Ring Insiders can now download the preview build 18309 , which is quite a minor update compared to the previous flight.

An FTC expert witness pointed out that Qualcomm has largely managed to stay out court hearings over enforcing patents while competitors Ericsson, Nokia and InterDigital have frequently been in court and subject to court orders.
