And this latest demand not only seeks money, claims something bigger: ban the sales and distribution of the iPhone. That is, Qualcomm wants to ban Apple's flagship product in the US .

Qualcomm sues Apple for infringing six patents

The patents Qualcomm claims to Apple are six , and most have to do with battery saving and network connections . These patents have been obtained in the last 4 years, Qualcomm states that they are not mandatory in any industry standard and that Apple is using them without paying a dollar for them.

Qualcomm, in the press release that have spread among the media, goes even further. They claim that their creations are at the heart of every iPhone , and that they are vital to its operation.
