Sorry Samsung fans, Apple has finally come out on top in their long standing patent battle involving the "slide to unlock" gesture.

About Making Comments on our Site: Patently Apple reserves the right to post, dismiss or edit any comments. These two companies need to determine in a court of law -just how much Samsung actually has to pay Apple for infringing on the latter company's designs.

Back in 2014, a California federal court awarded Apple a $120 million penalty to be paid by Samsung, The decision was overturned by the Federal Circuit, but the same court reinstated the damages later in October 2016.

Samsung will have to pay Jobs Mob $120 million after the US Supreme Court said today that it wouldn't hear an appeal of the patent infringement case, first decided in 2014. Samsung appealed the decision in the US Supreme Court stating that the Federal Circuit didn't hear the complete story before giving the verdict against it. It is also worth noting that out of the three patents, the patent for "quick-links" feature, which turned phone numbers and addresses into clickable links, accounted for more than 80% of total damages, which is almost $100m.

George Bush Sr dislikes Trump
As the details of the book were made public, the White House obviously didn't stay quiet and reacted strongly to the comments. It is rare in the modern political era to see former presidents to openly criticize their successors. "...

But here's the amusing part: all the original phones involved in the battle have already been phased out of protection. According to Samsung the features were "obvious" and thus not able to be patented. In return, Samsung had filed a case against Apple for unauthorised use of its intellectual property in nine products in iPhones and iPads categories for a meagre $6.2 million.

The company has also said that the ruling would allow Apple to "unjustly profit" from an invalid patent.

The companies have battled in close to a dozen countries, with each accusing the other of infringing on various patents related to their flagship smartphone and tablet products.

Notably, Samsung has manufactured the screens of Apple's iPhone X for its AMOLED display.
