Apple and Google have been engaged in patent battles for years before reaching the settlement. The settlement does not include a patent cross-licensing agreement.

 In a joint statement, the companies said the settlement does not include a cross license to their respective patents. “Apple and Google have also agreed to work together in some areas of patent reform,” the statement said.

The fight between the two companies began back in 2010, with both sides accusing the other of patent infringement. Google inherited the battle when it acquired Motorola Mobility in 2011. There are over a dozen various lawsuits currently being fought around the globe between the companies, and this settlement will reportedly clear them all from the docket.

Apple is still battling over patent lawsuits in the courts against a number of companies, including Samsung. However, there was a report on Monday that Apple and Samsung are negotiating to settle those battles out of court.
