Qualcomm wants sales stop of iPhone XS and XR in China




Qualcomm has requests to Chinese courts to stop the import and sale of the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR in China. Qualcomm relies on infringement of his patents.

Qualcomm filed cases with courts in the Chinese cities of Beijing, Qingdao and Guangzhou, confirming the lawyer representing Qualcomm against The Financial Times . The chip maker is encouraged by the provisional provision last week in a patent case against Apple. “We plan to use the same patents in the case against the three new iPhone models,” said the lawyer.

A court in China pronounced an import and sales ban on the provisional provision for the iPhone models 6s through X. This happened in a case involving three Qualcomm patents on which Apple would infringe. For two patents, the court participated in the claims of Qualcomm. It is a patent about adjusting the size of photos and about the use of touchscreens for apps.

According to Apple, the imposed import and sales ban has no effect in practice because the patent infringement only concerns iOS 11 and not iOS 12, which appeared in September. Qualcomm does not agree with this and claims that the infringement also continues with iOS 12. The Tuesday provisional provision does not mention an iOS version, according to the FT. Apple appeals against the ruling.
