The Great Wall of China: Apple can not manufacture or sell iPhones there



The current legal battle of Apple with Qualcomm warms up in a serious way today. The chip maker said it filed a lawsuit against Apple in China , one more , in an effort to block the sale and manufacture of iPhones in the country. And there are several demands in this regard.

"Qualcomm Inc. has filed lawsuits in China to ban the sale and manufacture of iPhones in the country, the biggest chip maker at Apple Inc. so far in a bitter and overflowing legal battle ," reports Bloomberg News.

The fight between Apple and Qualcomm began in January, when the FTC filed a complaint alleging that Qualcomm forced Apple to use its baseband chips for higher capital gains. Apple continued with a $ 1 billion lawsuit against Qualcomm, three days after monopoly complaints.


Qualcomm said the lawsuit was based on baseless accusations and accused Apple of falsifying the facts, and openly discussed a counterproduct while saying it expected the business to continue as usual before contradicting Apple.


Apple has been withholding capital gains payments to Qualcomm since the dispute began, and it was reported in May that Qualcomm was seeking a ban on iPhone imports in the United States. Apple has also instructed its suppliers not to pay capital gains from Qualcomm.


Last week, a timely interview with Apple's attorney, Bruce Sewell, who would soon retire, detailed the ongoing conflict between the two companies. In short, Sewell says that the Qualcomm chip costs Apple about $ 18 over 5% of the iPhone's selling price Apple considers too high.

As we get to know more, we will update with new details as they become available.
