Apple's lawsuit claimed Samsung, now the world's biggest handset maker, copied the design and other features of the iPhone as the smartphone market was exploding.
Those design elements were protected, prompting the jury to award Apple all the profits from sales of smartphones containing those features, Samsung lawyers said in their filing.
Indeed in parallel with the court case - and the evolving iPhone - Apple has also been working to extricate itself from its dependence on Samsung's components.
The lawsuit started in 2011, when Apple alleged that Samsung's Nexus Android phones infringed on Apple's patents, trademarks, user interface and style.
Divided European Union leaders hold talks on migration
And despite the decline in arrivals, the political consequences of migration pressures are still reverberating across Europe. Sixteen of the EU's 28 leaders held talks in Brussels on Sunday, ahead of a summit, the European Council, on June 28-29.
Documents filed with the Northern District Court of California this morning indicate that both parties have agreed to drop and settle the remaining claims and counter claims in their legal battle. Apple had originally been granted more than $1bn in damages from its South Korean nemesis, having convinced the courts in a 2012 ruling that Samsung had infringed on its distinctive iPhone design with various Galaxy handsets. But the last major event in the case came in May when the court ordered Samsung to pay Apple $539 million in damages. It was ordered to pay the United States tech giant more than $1 billion for infringing on three of Apple's design patents related to mobile devices - the quick links to phone numbers, the slide-to-unlock feature and the auto-correct function.
With the settlement of remaining claims and counterclaims in the Apple v. Samsung fight, Apple ends a long battle that its late co-founder Steve Jobs once fervently waged.
Samsung paid $548 million of the $1.05 billion owed to Apple in 2015, but appealed all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse the $399 million decision.
The case had been sent back to the district court following a Supreme Court decision to revisit an earlier $400 million damage award.
