$AAPL said $QCOM is trying to charge $AAPL a percentage of the total iPhone value. The work done by $QCOM on standard-essential patents is only a small part of the iPhone and it has nothing to do with the display, touch id or any other innovation done by $AAPL. $AAPL believes this dispute is a matter of principle.

$QCOM said the process to acquire NXP is going well. The company has filed for approval in China and plans to file in Europe soon with other jurisdictions following the European filing. $QCOM has not put out a final estimate for the financing cost although $QCOM believes the acquisition debt could be $10-12Bil.

$QCOM's dispute with $AAPL is on whether $QCOM owes $AAPL about $1Bil under its Cooperation Agreement. $QCOM said $AAPL withheld payments to their contract manufacturers who in turn withheld payments to $QCOM on royalties. This is reflected in 2Q17. The high end of 3Q17 guidance would be reflective of $QCOM getting its due payments in full.
