Apple and Qualcomm were in the middle of a range of legal battles but the two companies have now come to an agreement which ends the dispute.
Apple CEO Tim Cook has now talked about the deal between the two companies during Apple’s recent earnings call, you can see what he had to say below.
We’re glad to put the litigation behind us and all the litigation around the world has been dismissed and settled. We’re very happy to have a multi-year supply agreement and we’re happy that we have a direct license arrangement with Qualcomm that was important for both companies. We feel good about the resolution.
The deal means that we can expect Qualcomm’s 5G modems to be used in future iPhones, this is expected to happen with the release of the 2020 iPhone.
