Qualcomm's FRAND licensing approach is more than fair, and the model could be used against Apple for the very same arguments Apple is using against Qualcomm and others, such as Samsung. I recall in a Qualcomm complaint against Apple that Apple was essentially arguing that it was fair to over charge Samsung for using three touch screen patents (4/10/17):

"Apple’s counteroffer is irreconcilable with its approach to valuing its own patents. As noted above, in its recent litigation with Samsung, Apple claimed that three Apple patents on user-interface features were worth $7.14 per phone. That is, Apple claims that thousands of Qualcomm patents on fundamental technologies that are essential to cellular communication—critical to the usefulness of the iPhone itself—pale in comparison to just three Apple patents on user- interface features. "

In raising the deliberately preliminary suggestion in my last post up the SI flag pole, I believe the outcome would be that Qualcomm could obtain greater licensing fees. If not acceptable, Paul E. Jacobs can head up the Telecommunications Practice as a Managing Partner of The Partnering Group, and establish strategic management best practices for the entire supply chain. He could possibly command $10K-$20K a day for his services...
