Qualcomm is gearing up to sue Apple for the alleged violation of the contract. According to sources, the Snapdragon chipmaker has filed a fresh lawsuit against the iPhone manufacturer for breaching the software contract to benefit Intel.
According to Qualcomm, Apple had shared vital and confidential information about the manufacturing process of broadband modems with Intel. The document sourced from a San Diego court reveals the fact that Apple used commercial power to access confidential and classified software related information and then shared it with Intel. The leaked information also includes source code, which is vital for the development of the software.
The Tim Cook-owned company initially demanded information related to software about the real working of the Qualcomm chipsets with an unidentified mobile service provider. As per the lawsuit, the Apple forwarded the information to an Intel engineer without obtaining the required permission.
The paper also mentions the fact that there has been information exchange between an Apple engineer who works for Intel and Qualcomm. These two persons were used as a carrier for fetching classified data from Qualcomm.
There are reports that Apple has integrated Intel broadband modem chipsets on iPhone 7 and above devices. Moreover, the company is planning to stop the use of modem chipsets manufactured by Qualcomm from 2019. The relationship between Apple and Qualcomm is not in good spirits with multiple lawsuits being filed not only in the US but also in China.
