Qualcomm did not bribe Apple for exclusivity of iPhone modems at Intel’s expense, EU court rules

Written by admin

Against all odds, given how tough European Commissioner Margrethe Vestager has been with the crackdown on several Big Tech shenanigans, Qualcomm has managed to evade a $1 billion fine on allegations it has illegally encouraged. Apple will use its LTE modems at the expense of Intel.

The Court’s ruling could be key in the European Commission’s (EC) crusade against Big Tech and the multi-billion dollar fines it has long imposed on companies like Apple or Google.

Qualcomm isn’t out of the woods just yet, as the EU’s antitrust regulator can still appeal the next and final move from the EU’s Court of Justice, though they’re unlikely to completely overturn the lower court’s findings , provided there are some procedural errors of the EC.
