Apple will stop selling iPhone 7 and 8 in Germany as it appeals to an order from the Munich district, CNBC reported.
Qualcomm shouted in a statement that the ban was used to include Apple's EU units, as well as Cupertino-based Apple Incorporated.

Apple and Qualcomm started their legal stoush in January 2017 when Cupertino filed a suit claiming $ 1 billion in damages claiming Qualcomm's withdrawal of contract payments was due to Apple's cooperation with South Korean researchers.
