Qualcomm has ratcheted its legal war with Apple up way past 11.
The chipmaker has asked the US International Trade Commission to ban imports of some iPhone and iPad models from the US, on the grounds that they violate six Qualcomm patents.
A related lawsuit was also filed in a California court Thursday seeking monetary damages, in addition to the import ban.
Qualcomm is specifically seeking a ban on an Apple products that use baseband modems — the chips that connect to cell networks — that are made by companies other than Qualcomm.
In addition to seeking a ban on imports, Qualcomm is also seeking to immediately stop any retail sales or advertising of the infringing products.
Qualcomm has not confirmed exactly which models of iPhone would be affected, but assuming that any non-Qualcomm modem is excluded, iPhone 7 models for AT and T-Mobile (but not Verizon and Sprint) would be banned.
