Apple and Samsung have ended a years-long patent battle over copied iPhone design with an undisclosed settlement, according to a U.S. court filing Wednesday. In 2011, Apple accused Samsung for violating its patents and "slavishly" copying the design of the iPhone. Neither, Apple nor Samsung have confirmed the terms of settlement in this patent dispute case. We aren't sure if more money will be owed now that the two have settled, but I expect those details will be released sooner or later.
"Plaintiff Apple Inc. and Defendants Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., Samsung Electronics America, Inc., and Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC would like to inform the Court that they have agreed to drop and settle their remaining claims and counterclaims in this matter". How much, if anything, Samsung must pay Apple under Wednesday's settlement could not immediately be learned.
The Court filing also states that the "remaining claims and counterclaims in this action are hereby dismissed with prejudice", and another case can not be filed on the same claim.

Samsung would need to make an additional payment to Apple of almost $140 million if the verdict was upheld. Apple ignited the smartphone revolution with iPhone and it is a fact that Samsung blatantly copied our design. In a previous publicised settlement over patents with HTC, Apple didn't disclose settlement terms. Since the case first came about, we've seen the judge rule in Apple's favor back in 2012, and an endless series of appeals since then.
Samsung had previously paid Apple $399 million to compensate for patent infringement.
"We believe deeply in the value of design", Apple said recently, "and our teams work tirelessly to create innovative products that delight our customers".
