Qualcomm filed the grievance in early July, asking the U.S. trade controllers to forbid particular iPhone models that have supposed modem chips of broadband. These chops assist phones link to wireless data networks, which were not manufactured by Qualcomm. Apple commenced utilizing modem chips of broadband in iPhone 7 produced by Intel Corp.
