KXIP vs KKR Live Score

In an unexpected move, Apple and Samsung have agreed to settle their seven-year-old patent infringement lawsuit.

Apple, if you recall, first sued Samsung back in April of 2011, alleging that Samsung's lineup of tablets and smartphones "slavishly copied" designs and features pioneered by both the iPhone and the iPad.

Neither Apple nor Samsung has commented on this new development.

The case had been set to make yet another appearance in Koh's Northern California District Court to settle yet another pack of Apple infringement claims and Samsung counterclaims. This verdict prompted Apple to issue a statement claiming their battle with Samsung was always about "more than money", and that their primary goal with the suits was to "protect the hard work and innovation" of their team. It was unclear how this week's ruling would affect that settlement. The accusation was that the Galaxy phone maker had violated Apple design patents across five different Android devices which has been on sale between 2010 and 2011. It was ordered to pay the United States tech giant more than $1 billion for infringing on three of Apple's design patents related to mobile devices - the quick links to phone numbers, the slide-to-unlock feature and the auto-correct function.

In a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court threw out the US$399m decision and ordered the case to virtually restart in San Jose.

With the settlement of remaining claims and counterclaims in the Apple v. Samsung fight, Apple ends a long battle that its late co-founder Steve Jobs once fervently waged.

Samsung paid US$548m of the US$1.05b owed to Apple in 2015, but appealed all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse the US$399m decision.

The case was decided on the balance of probabilities whether Samsung had copied Apple, and the courts decided for Apple, handing down a $539 million verdict for Apple.
