Seven years after the two technology giants took each other to court, Apple and Samsung have officially ended their dispute. Back in May, Samsung was ordered by the jury to pay Apple $538m in damages.
The court filing document, which is available online, states that the plaintiff Apple and defendant Samsung "have agreed to drop and settle their remaining claims and counterclaims in this matter".
The ruling, of course, didn't spell the end for Apple and Samsung's legal squabbles. Apple declined to comment on the agreement, but an Apple rep referred CNN to a company statement released last month that said, "Apple ignited the smartphone revolution with iPhone and it is a fact that Samsung blatantly copied our design".
Apple had alleged that Samsung violated its patents by copying the design of the iPhone. "We believe deeply in the value of design, and our teams work tirelessly to create innovative products that delight our customers", Apple wrote.

Wisconsin attorney general Brad Schimel said he was "pleased" at the supreme court's decision not to appeal the conviction. The court's decision revives the state's 27th Congressional District, formerly held by Rep.
Paul Berghoff, a patent lawyer with McDonnell Boehnen Hulbert & Berghoff, referred to Apple and Samsung as "Sumo wrestlers who have exhausted of the wrestling match". Apple's argument was that Samsung's penalty should be calculated on the entire cost of the iPhone.
Apple and Samsung have always been at war with each other over the iPhone's design similarities with Samsungs smartphones.
The case had been sent back to the district court following a Supreme Court decision to revisit an earlier $400 million damage award.
In 2012, a jury awarded Apple more than $1-billion in its initial showdown with its South Korean rival in federal court in San Jose, California.
