It is reported that last year at Apple headquarters, the two sides held a high-level dialogue. Morenkov suspected that Apple was on the other side of its rival when Bloom launched a bid for Qualcomm, which turned into a huge rift in the relationship between the two sides.
In 2017, Botong suddenly put forward its plan to acquire Qualcomm, even attempted to achieve its goal by restructuring the board of directors of the other side, but was eventually "stopped" by the President of the United States in a short time, on the grounds that "national security may be endangered".
Although Apple did not make a statement, Qualcomm's "detective" apparently submitted adverse information to it.
The report also mentioned that Apple and Qualcomm had a good relationship when Jobs was CEO, but Cook was shocked by the huge chip and licensing fees Apple paid Qualcomm in 2011, which eventually triggered a conflict.
