Thursday Apple Rumors: Qualcomm Pushing for 2018 iPhone BanQualcomm: The legal battle between Qualcomm and Apple continues with another push from the company, reports 9to5Mac. Qualcomm is seeking to ban the sales of AAPL’s newest smartphones, including the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR, in China. This comes after a successful ban on older iPhone devices in the country. This ban is over alleged patent infringement. The company is planning to use this same patent infringement claims to push for the new bans.

Web Player: Subscribers to Apple Music can now listen to their songs via a web browser, MacRumors noted. Unfortunately, this isn’t an official web player from AAPL. Instead, it is an unofficial one that comes from software engineer Naveed Golafshani. It includes many of the same features Music offers, but there are still some issues. However, it is a good solution since there is no official web player for the music streaming service.

This new campus will be about one mile away from the current one in the city. It will house the current 6,200 AAPL employees in the city, as we as 5,000 new employees.
