Cupertino giant -Apple has once again found itself in deeper troubled water as it risks more sales ban in Germany after it lost a second court battle against to Qualcomm. The chipmaker seeks to enforce a ban on some models of the Apple iPhones using chips from Intel for infringing on its patent.
In its ruling, the judge ruled that some Apple iPhones that contain both chips from Intel and Apple supplier Qorvo violated one of Qualcomm’s patent feature that helps mobile phones save battery power while sending and receiving wireless signals. The court further ruled that the ruling will not go into immediate effect if Apple appeals, judge Matthias Zigann told the court. Pending an appeal from the iPhone maker, Qualcomm will have to deposit a $765 million bond in order for the ruling to go into effect.
