The Apple vs Qualcomm legal war just took a dramatic new twist

According to Bloomberg, the new suit alleges that Apple refuses to allow Qualcomm to audit Apple's handling of the chipmaker's proprietary software, something the company says is in the current contract.

Recent reports have claimed Apple is planning to ditch Qualcomm completely for the 2018 iPhone handsets, given the recent strife between the two firms.

Qualcomm's Q4 2017 operating income has dropped by 82 percent compared to Q4 previous year as a result of royalty and licensing disputes with Apple and other licensees. It widened its suppliers to include Intel for some versions of the iPhone beginning with the 7 model. Back in January, Apple sued Qualcomm for allegedly withholding $1 billion in rebates because it complied with Korean regulators investigating Qualcomm. Bloomberg reports that Qualcomm has filed a new lawsuit against Apple accusing it of helping Intel using Qualcomm code. The chipmaker also says that an Apple engineer who was working with a competitor (still probably Intel) requested protected information about data download tech.

Reuters reported earlier this week that Apple would drop Qualcomm's chips altogether from its iPhones and iPads beginning next year.
