"Qualcomm is selectively asserting its patents to target only Apple products containing Intel chipsets -- even though its patent infringement allegations would apply equally to Apple products containing Qualcomm chipsets -- in an attempt to use the ITC as another mechanism for perpetuating its ill-gotten monopoly position," Apple wrote.
The annual conference tied together all of the latest updates to Apple's platforms--iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS--along with some bigger initiatives focused on bolstering privacy and security, and curbing technology addiction.

After nearly five days of deliberations, a U.S. jury on Thursday said Samsung Electronics Co Ltd should pay $539 million to Apple Inc for copying patented smartphone features, according to court documents, bringing a years-long feud between the technology companies into its final stages.
About one in three employees at Google, Facebook and Apple is a woman. That’s an imbalance that tech sector executives Sheryl Sandberg and Tim Cook say they want to change. Yet even if their companies set a target of just over half their new recruits being women, a Breakingviews calculator shows that closing the gender gap will take up to 15 years.
Apple Inc. warned employees to stop leaking internal information on future plans and raised the specter of potential legal action and criminal charges, one of the most-aggressive moves by the world’s largest technology company to control information about its activities.
In the interview with MSNBC and Recode for the "Revolution: Apple Changing the World" special, due for broadcast on April 6, Cook suggested programming was an important tool to learn.

The education-technology market has largely not been going Apple’s way in recent years, for all of its efforts to make its iPads and Macintosh computers the go-to classroom computers everywhere. Apple faces fierce competition from Chromebooks, which are Web-centric, Google-flavored laptops that are inexpensive for school districts to purchase en masse -- iPads are typically pricier -- and are a breeze for school IT managers to deploy and manage.
It's going to take more than saving frogs from a grisly death for Apple to take over schools. The company announced its latest iPad update at an education themed press event on Tuesday inside a Chicago public school.

Apple wants schools to buy these products at a slightly discounted rate so students can create art, immerse themselves in history and, yes, dissect virtual frogs.
Apple’s new stance seems to be that kids can interact with iPads in ways that are unique. iPads have a point of view on education. And while not every school–or even most of them–can choose the iPad as its classroom computer, Apple is motivated to remove every obstacle that it can, making the experience as valuable as possible for the kids who use them and the educators who help the kids.
