In a fresh charge against Apple, Qualcomm has accused the iPhone-maker of stealing “vast swaths” of confidential information related to chips and trading the secrets with Intel to improve the performance of chips provided by the rival chipmaker to the Cupertino tech giant. The lawsuit was filed in the Superior Court in San Diego. The fresh allegations build on the existing charges that Qualcomm had pressed against Apple, claiming that the company infringed its terms of licence claiming that Apple has failed to protect its proprietary software and is not allowing an audit of how Apple handles its software, something which is part of Qualcomm’s contract that the former signed when it became the chipmaker’s customer a decade ago.
