Ap­ple, Qual­comm set­tle dis­pute over iPhone tech

The Tribune (SLO) - - News -

Ap­ple and mo­bile chip maker Qual­comm have set­tled a bit­ter fi­nan­cial dis­pute cen­tered on some of the tech­nol­ogy that en­ables iPhones to con­nect to the in­ter­net.

The sur­prise truce an­nounced Tues­day came just as the for­mer al­lies turned an­tag­o­nists were facing off in a fed­eral court trial that was sup­posed to un­fold over the next month in San Diego. The res­o­lu­tion abruptly ended that trial, which also in­volved Ap­ple’s key iPhone sup­pli­ers.

The deal re­quires Ap­ple to pay Qual­comm an undis­closed amount. It also in­cludes a six-year li­cens­ing agree­ment.
