The two have taken jabs at each other over the years, with Samsung making fun of everything from the iPhone X's notch to the disappearance of the headphone jack in new Apple devices.
"We're grateful to the jury for their service and pleased they agree that Samsung should pay for copying our products", it added. Today's settlement comes on the heels of another patent battle with Samsung, over the iPhone's slide-to-unlock functionality, in which Apple won $120 million in November of a year ago. 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. How much, if anything, Samsung must pay Apple under Wednesday's settlement could not immediately be learned.
What resulted was a seemingly endless legal battle that would see both sides lob multiple infringement claims and counterclaims, including Apple at one point getting some Samsung phones banned from sale in the US.
"This case has always been about more than money", the statement read. "We believe deeply in the value of design, and our teams work tirelessly to create innovative products that delight our customers", Apple wrote.
Samsung's lawyers appealed the case, bringing down the compensation of $1 billion to $400 million in 2015 at the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. But the case has had a lasting impact on United States patent law.
Samsung had previously paid Apple $399 million to compensate for patent infringement.
