After Victory, Qualcomm Asks Chinese Courts to Ban New iPhones

Chipmaker Qualcomm Inc. is asking courts in China to ban sales of Apple Inc.’s latest iPhone models XS and XR after winning a preliminary injunction against older models, the company confirmed. Three days earlier, a Chinese court had ordered a sales ban of some older Apple iPhone models for violating two patents of Qualcomm, though intellectual property lawyers said enforcement of the ban was likely still a distant threat.
