New See the second point in the complaint
Qualcomm has patents that cover the standards underpinning the essentials of a cell phone. They were using those to force the sale of their chips. That's the big no-no.

It is interesting to see Apple caved on this as they had a round with Samsung in court regarding their FRAND licensing terms and were handed a clear victory.
New /cynic
Unless Apple thought doing this would make it harder on the Android market, since every company would have to negotiate their own terms without collective bargaining power.
