Apple accuses Qualcomm of patent infringement in countersuit

The Snapdragon 800 and 820 aren't the newest processors Qualcomm is offering, but they are part of the company's processor lineup and have been powering high-end phones for some time now. Apple started seeking those patents several years before Qualcomm started seeking the patents it claims against Apple in this litigation.
"Apple can import iPhones (regardless of who supplies the modems) that do not infringe the patents asserted in this action, but Apple has no inherent right to infringe Qualcomm's [non-standards essential patents] through the sale of its iPhones", Qualcomm said in its filing.
The Apple patents cover technology that ensures that each part of a phone's processor draws only the minimum power needed, turning off parts of the processor when they are not needed and making sleep and wake functions work better. The company has also filed three additional patent infringement lawsuits against Apple and says the company infringes on 16 patents... In that suit, Apple said Qualcomm's behavior was akin to "a common patent troll". In a filing at the US District Court in San Diego, Apple has come out with accusations of its own, saying it owns at least eight battery life patents that Qualcomm has violated.
This is of course a countersuit, dating back to a lawsuit Qualcomm filed against Apple on exactly the same grounds. Now, during Thanksgiving, this might have been confirmed after the US Patent & Trademark Office published a patent application from Apple relating to a possible foldable iPhone model.
Qualcomm in November sued Apple over an alleged breach of a software agreement between the two companies.
Separately, Qualcomm is facing a lawsuit from the U.S. Federal Trade Commission over numerous same pricing practices Apple names in its complaints.
