App makers who want to use the new camera on the iPhone X can capture a rough map of a u...

The two companies are locked in a multinational legal dispute over the Qualcomm’s licensing terms to Apple. “We are committed to supporting Apple’s new devices consistent with our support of all others in the industry,” Qual...
