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.
