Hearings on the suit of the Federal trade Commission (FTC), the United States, accusing Qualcomm abuse of dominant position on the market of chipsets for mobile devices reveal new details of the relationship between Qualcomm and its largest customer is Apple, two years ago started with its supplier patent dispute.

Just yesterday we told you that Apple demanded from Qualcomm for the transition to the modems of the company’s “incentive payment” in the amount of $ 1 billion, to which Qualcomm agreed on the condition that she will be the sole supplier.

According to the source, Apple CEO, Jeff Williams (Jeff Williams) at the trial testified that Qualcomm refused to sell the Apple modems 5G due to the above mentioned dispute concerning patent licensing.

Apple wanted to use in the new models the iPhone 4G LTE modem production Qualcomm, but the manufacturer of the modems refused to sell them. According to Williams, position Qualcomm has an impact on how quickly Apple will be able to go to 5G .

Specify that Qualcomm continues to supply Apple with modems for previous models of iPhone, including the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, although there are versions of these devices that use modems Intel. The iPhone XS, Max XS and XR are only used 4G modems manufactured by Intel.

It is expected that next generation iPhone will also only be used modems Intel, and since the 5G modems from Intel is ready, Apple will be late with the release of the corresponding models. All major suppliers of smartphones with Android in the US will offer devices that support 5G in the Christmas season this year, but smartphones are Apple with modems 5G will appear on the market not earlier than in 2020.

Thus, it was confirmed previously published information.

Apple Fixes FaceTime Flaw, Compensates Teen Who Found It

Apple on Thursday rolled out the iOS 12.1.4 update to fix a Group FaceTime bug that let users hear audio of the callee before they answer.

iDevice owners should upgrade their operating system ASAP to avoid prying eyes—and ears.

First reported by 9to5Mac last week, the glitch made it easy to eavesdrop on contacts. Simply start a FaceTime video chat, swipe up from the bottom to choose “Add Person,” type in your own phone number, and listen.

Before the patch, hackers could overhear anything the person’s mobile microphone picked up, not to mention see anything their front-facing camera detected.

Now, after more than a week offline, Cupertino has reinstated Group FaceTime, sans unintentional spyware.

The update is available for iPhone 5S and later, iPad Air and later, and iPod touch 6th generation.

Release notes claim a “logic issue existed” in Group FaceTime, which was fixed “with improved state management.” As of Thursday evening, Apple’s System Status page noted the app had been restored.

The tech titan credited Daven Morris of Arlington, Texas, as well as Catalina Foothills High School student Grant Thompson—who with his mother Michele led Apple to turn off group chat during its investigation.

In return, the firm will compensate the Thompson family and make a monetary gift toward 14-year-old Grant’s education, according to Reuters, which did not publish exact figures.

It’s been a rough week for Apple, which faces multiple lawsuits and questions from lawmakers over the FaceTime incident.

Add to that the headline-making news that some iOS apps record users’ activity without permission, blatantly skirting Apple’s guidelines, and you’ve got what I’d call a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad start to 2019.
