Qualcomm is ramping up its efforts to compete with Apple’s new M-series chips for the Mac.

Qualcomm’s acquisition of Nuvia has been very messy for a number of reasons. Nuvia CEO Gerard Williams serves as Qualcomm’s senior vice president of engineering.

Williams then fired back with his own lawsuit, saying that Apple illegally monitored his text messages and that his so-called “breach of contract” is unenforceable. There has been no resolution in this lawsuit yet.
