Apple, Qualcomm settle just after trial begins
For the past few years, Apple and Qualcomm have dueled on three continents over the division of billions of dollars of smartphone profits and even how much consumers pay for their phones.
On Tuesday, just as a trial began in a federal courtroom in San Diego over a suit Apple had filed against Qualcomm, the two companies said they had essentially made up.
The companies, one the maker of iPhones and the other one of the largest providers of mobile chips, said they had agreed to dismiss all litigation between them worldwide.
They added that they had reached a six-year license agreement, effective as of April 1, 2019, including a two-year option to extend, and a multiyear chipset supply agreement.
The case began in January 2017, when Apple said the chipmaker and wireless pioneer had a stranglehold on the market for wireless modem chips that, until recently, had been used in the iPhone. Apple contends that Qualcomm leveraged its position to overcharge for its patent licenses. Rather than bend to Apple’s demands, Qualcomm countersued.
