Apple and Qualcomm are ending their legal battles


The years-long legal battle between Apple and Qualcomm appears to be coming to an end.

The two companies have just announced a settlement, with both agreeing to drop all litigation with the other worldwide.

Exact details of the agreement are under wraps, with the two companies only disclosing:

Qualcomm stock spiked by about 18% with the news.
