"In order to purchase Qualcomm chips or obtain access to patents pledged to a cellular standard, Qualcomm demands that third parties pay Qualcomm a royalty much greater than the value of Qualcomm's contribution to the standard", Apple argues. But this afternoon, the companies announced that they had reached a deal in the case. Apple, on the other hand, saw a small dip before going up by barely 1%. It's getting a payment from Apple, and a multi-year deal to supply chips for iPhone. Now that the settlement has taken place, it means that future iPhones may once again feature Qualcomm-branded 5G modem chips.
