Apple and Nokia end their patent war
After quite a long time spent as adversaries in court, the two companies signed a multi-year patent license, settling all litigation related to their high-profile intellectual property dispute.

Apple has been involved in many legal battles in the past, and some are still going on. Fortunately, the Cupertino giant and Nokia have decided to move on, leaving their patent-related troubles behind and even signing a cooperation agreement.

According to the official press release, as a consequence of this deal, "Nokia will be providing certain network infrastructure product and services to Apple. Apple will resume carrying Nokia digital health products (formerly under the Withings brand) in Apple retail and online stores, and Apple and Nokia are exploring future collaboration in digital health initiatives."

In addition to the above, regular summits between the top executives of the two companies will be held to ensure the effectiveness of the relationship. Although the figures behind this agreement remain confidential, it is known that Apple will pay Nokia an up-front sum of cash, followed by additional revenues until the end of the agreement.
