Apple and Qualcomm are now locked in a legal battle. The claim from against Qualcomm is that the company is anticompetitive in its methods to keep their monopoly on the semiconductor market in mobile phones.
Qualcomm chips are found in iPhones, Samsung, HTC, LG, Xiaomi, Sony, LeEco, HP, ZTE, ASUS, OnePlus, Moto and more. With so many companies using Qualcomm chips, it’s easy to see how the semiconductor company is a target for lawsuits. Samsung and Apple made up 40% of Qualcomm’s $23.5 billion revenue the last financial year.
