The settlement includes a payment from Apple to Qualcomm, though a press release did not specify its terms. The agreement ends all ongoing litigation, including with Apple’s contract manufacturers.
The two tech giants reached a six-year license agreement effective on April 1, 2019, including a two-year option to extend. The settlement also included a chipset supply agreement, which according to CNBC suggests Apple will buy Qualcomm chips again for future iPhones.
Apple shares were little changed following the announcement. Qualcomm was on track for its largest one-day gain since December 29, 1999, when the stock rose 31%.
