There is nothing I have read about that suggest that Apple cross-lisensed its patents. And the clearest evidence are Nokias phones...
"Apple said in a statement today that Nokia will have a license to some technology, “but not the majority
of the innovations that make the iPhone unique.” Apple gets a license to some of Nokia’s patents, including ones that were deemed essential to industry standards on mobile phones."
That statement from Apple would infer that some
of the the granted licenses were even for "innovations that make the iPhone unique". There was more to the case than a simple issue of F/RAND licensing. But we'll probably never know the details, specifically why Apple would agree to license a group of patents to Nokia in the settlement.
