The lawsuit was filed on Wednesday at the California State Court in San Diego.

Qualcomm has done a lot of things to squeeze Apple into giving in to its demands, from asking the Federal Trade Commission to ban all sales of iPhones in the U.S.to making the Chinese market inhospitable for the Cupertino firm.

Apple responded to this, saying that the company had tried to negotiate before suing and that Qualcomm is abusing its position.

The lawsuit also claims Apple did little to stop the valuable Qualcomm information from being shared with Apple engineers who were working with Intel. Notably, the lawsuit comes days after a report that Apple is designing future generation iPhones that don't use a Qualcomm chip at all.

Apple sued Qualcomm in January 2017 for almost $1 billion, claiming that Qualcomm had "unfairly insisted on charging royalties for technologies they have nothing to do with".

It's already attempted to in the past, as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus carried both Intel and Qualcomm chips, as did this year's iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

The battle between Apple and Qualcomm has been raging on since the year began as our list of reports below proves out. Qualcomm are claiming Apple breached their contracted agreement, which was arranged regarding the software necessary for mobile chips to interact with the rest of an Apple handset.

If Qualcomm loses that business, it would cut the company's revenue by about 7.5 percent, Raymond James & Associates estimates. Apple requested that its contract manufacturers withhold royalties to Qualcomm until the dispute is resolved.

Qualcomm's fight with Apple has taken another turn, as the company has filed yet another lawsuit.
