Germany: Apple sells iPhone 7 and 8 equipped by Qualcomm

Apple has released in Germany its iPhone 7 and 8, in versions equipped no longer with Intel modems but their counterparts signed Qualcomm.

This is the solution found by Apple to reconnect with the marketing of these two ranges, still in its catalog. It had been said that she could make some hardware and software changes to circumvent the ban on their sale. In the end, it puts on the German market versions of these two phones that are usually sold in other countries and continents.

In January, more iPhone 7 and 8 on the German site of Apple

The iPhone 7 were the first equipped sometimes by Qualcomm sometimes by Intel. The iPhone 8 and X have continued in this direction, then with the XR and XS, Apple is completely free of Qualcomm.

The iPhone 7 and 8 "Qualcomm" are sold roughly in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, China and India. As for Intel versions, they are found in Europe or Africa. Germany is the exception that confirms the rule, said Apple with Reuters, adding a little vinegar to his statement: " Qualcomm tries to use these injunctions to force Apple to comply with its extortion demands ".

For the latest generation of iPhone and equipped with Intel, nothing changes, they are sold quite normally in Germany.

In December, a German court ruled that Apple was infringing a Qualcomm patent on a technique to limit spending on the battery during a cellular connection. More specifically, it was Qorvo, a component provider for Apple in these two types of iPhone, which was singled out.

Renouncing to run at the beginning, Apple had, in January, finally removed the iPhone from its site and its 15 Apple Store (its partners continued to propose). A trial is scheduled to begin in April in the United States between the two groups.
