    CNBC is reporting that Apple and Qualcomm have settled their royalty dispute.
    Thanks Carnegie. If accurate perhaps Apple and Qualcomm have been in some sort of negotiations for a period of time despite the denials.

    Checking further CNBC does appear to be accurate too with more than one source now reporting a settlement. 
    It's true. There's a press release on Apple's website. I'd bet the same press release appears on Qualcomm's website.
