Qualcomm and Apple have reached an agreement that will allow them to terminate patent litigation. The agreement will remove all restrictions on the sale of Apple devices worldwide. The companies have signed a new six-year licensing agreement effective as of April 1, 2019. In addition, Apple agreed to pay Qualcomm cash compensation, the amount of which was not announced.

This activity will make significant changes in cellular technology, stimulate the approach of a new era, opening new opportunities in many areas of life, including in the areas of IoT (Internet of Things), telemedicine, development of autonomous transport, etc.
Earlier, a federal jury in San Diego upheld Qualcomm's claim, acknowledging Apple's infringement of three patents. Prior to that, the Munich Regional Court found a violation of Qualcomm's patent rights, barring the sale of some iPhone models in Germany.
