Apple's iPhones continue to infringe on Qualcomm patents even after a recent software update pushed by the company, according to Qualcomm. "Despite Apple's efforts to downplay the significance of the order and its claims of various ways it will address the infringement, Apple apparently continues to flout the legal system by violating the injunctions," said Qualcomm in a statement provided to Reuters. Earlier this month, Apple was found to be violating Qualcomm intellectual property. The Chinese judicial system, in a court order, banned Apple from importing its devices into China, though Apple later suggested a software update would resolve the issue. The update was pushed last week. "Apple's statements following the issuance of the preliminary injunction have been deliberate attempts to obfuscate and misdirect," continued Qualcomm. "They are legally obligated to immediately cease sales, offers for sale and importation of the devices identified in the orders and to prove compliance in court." Apple believes it is complying with the court order and continues to offer its devices for sale in China. Apple and Qualcomm have been locked in a battle over patents and licensing costs for several years.
