New Qualcomm lawsuit claims Apple shared confidential code with Intel

Qualcomm claim that Apple hasn't protected their software sufficiently, which they legally agreed to, and say Apple aren't allowing for a proper audit to review how the iPhone handles their software. In the filing, Qualcomm reportedly accuses Apple of abusing its commercial leverage to access and then unlawfully using sensitive intellectual property.

In its complaint to the ITC, Qualcomm asked the body to ban 'iPhones that use cellular baseband processors other than those supplied by Qualcomm´s affiliates'. In response Qualcomm is seeking to stop Apple from making and selling its smartphones in China. The sources who leaked the plan said that next year's iPhone and iPad models could already be built with components from other manufacturers, namely Intel or Taiwan-based MediaTek Inc.

Qualcomm alleged that in July, Apple emailed Qualcomm to request "highly confidential" information about how its chips work on an unidentified wireless carrier's network. Now, the Qualcomm vs. Apple legal war has escalated into a new suit alleging that Apple has shared trade secrets with Qualcomm rival Intel.

The chip maker's latest move takes the form of a lawsuit that was submitted to the California state court in San Diego on Wednesday and hit the news cycle this morning.

The US chipmaker Qualcomm's legal battle with Apple did not dampen its growth as the company beat estimates with $5.96 billion in sales in the fourth quarter of its fiscal year that ended September 30.

In another United States case, Qualcomm alleges that it has six patents developed in the past four years that improve battery life in mobile devices and that 'Apple uses these technologies in its devices but is not paying for them'.
