Apple hopes to nullify four patents held by Qualcomm as the two tech giants continue to tussle over licensing and fees. Specifically, Apple filed petitions with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office asking the agency to cancel Qualcomm patents that it says aren't new. The patents in question cover autofocus on digital cameras, devices that function as a phone and a PDA, touch displays, and circuit memory. Each patent is part of the broader lawsuit that Qualcomm filed against Apple in 2017. The two companies have been arguing over the royalties involved and how much should be paid for using the patents. The two companies also have cases pending with the U.S. ITC, and in China and Germany. The U.S. PTO will review Apple's request to decide whether or not to initiate a formal review of the patents.
