This court case alleged that Apple infringed upon a number of Qualcomm patents with its smartphones iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, and X.
Because the court found Apple’s devices to have infringed upon Qualcomm’s patents, the jury awarded Qualcomm around $31 million USD in patent infringement damages from July 6th, 2017 through the end of the trial.
Further, the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X are said to have infringed upon Qualcomm’s U.S. Patent No.
In all other allegations in this case, Apple was found not guilty.
It’s important to note that this court’s finding did not rule in favor of Qualcomm on all counts.
At the point at which Developer and former Apple employee Arjuna Siva gave his initial deposition to the court, one of the 6 patents was removed from the list of complaints.
