Apple has officially confirmed the start of sales of modified models of the iPhone in Germany for the settlement of a lawsuit on patent infringement by Qualcomm.
The company from Cupertino said that she had no other choice but to replace Intel chips in some models of iPhone chips from Qualcomm to lift the ban on sales in Germany.
“Qualcomm is trying to use injunctions against our products, to make to comply with their demands. For the prosecution of Apple and other smartphone manufacturers they use the acquired patents, some of which has no relationship to the technologies of cellular communication”, — said the representative of Apple.
“To all iPhone models were again available for customers in Germany, we have no other choice but to stop using Intel chips and deliver our phones with Qualcomm chips. Qualcomm’s goal is to eliminate competition by any means possible, to the detriment of consumers and hindering the development of innovation processes”.
Apple is working on new versions of the iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 8 Plus and 8 with the updated modems that do not violate the injunction on sale in Germany.
We remind you that the mobile chip vendor Qualcomm has filed in a German court against Apple, stating that some models of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 violated the company’s patents. The decision of the German constitutional court ordered Apple to stop selling these iPhone models in the country.
Qualcomm also managed to achieve a temporary ban on sales of Apple’s smartphone in China. However, corporations were able to circumvent the ban by using software update.
