Apple is facing another lawsuit. This time, the company is being sued over infringement of wireless communications patents through its iPhones and other products that feature cellular connectivity.

According to a report by Apple Insider, the complaint was filed with the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas earlier this week. The lawsuit alleges that the Cupertino based giant knowingly infringed on five pieces of intellectual property owned by Delaware-based Neo Wireless, LLC. The patents were for some of the underlying systems that are related to wireless communications, the frequency bands, and other mobile networking technologies.

The lawsuit is technically targeting the way that the iPhones use multiple cellular networks. This includes both 4G LTE and 5G networkings. The complaint states that “To utilize LTE or 4G and NR or 5G networks, the iPhone is manufactured to comply with wireless standards, such as the 3GPP standards, that ensure compatibility of wireless devices and wireless networks.”

While it is not specifically mentioned, the lawsuit is also targetting the Apple Watch and iPad, as these products are presumed to fall under the claims of the infringement as the company’s other cellular-enabled gadgets. At the moment, the complaint is asking for a jury trial and demands that the company pay for the damages, cost, and other expenses related to the infringement of the patents. This also includes paying their attorney fees and ongoing royalties as well.
