These include wireless charging, dual-camera systems, OLED smartphone screens, edge-to-edge displays, and more features that the upcoming iPhone X has.
The blog is a reminder to Apple about how dependent the fruity cargo-cult is on Qualcomm technology.
Inventions from Qualcomm lay the foundation for so many technologies and experiences we value in our smartphones today — on Android and other platforms, Qualcomm said. One great example is Gigabit LTE. The latest Gigabit LTE-enabled Android smartphones can download content from mobile networks 135 times faster than the first Android phones could nine years ago, it continued. "Meanwhile, we’ve been inventing foundational technologies for Gigabit LTE for well over a decade."
Apple and Qualcomm are currently embroiled in what's turning into a vicious, global patent licensing dispute and its modems are at the centre of the dispute.
Apple believes it should be allowed to pay Qualcomm what it likes for the technology it invented and it should be allowed to make huge profits while other companies do all the research.
Qualcomm never mentions Apple by name in the blog - the closest the company ever comes is with this line: “Inventions from Qualcomm lay the foundation for so many technologies and experiences we value in our smartphones today - on Android and other platforms.”
