Apple settles patent infringement case with Immersion

Apple has settled a two-year-old patent dispute with haptic technology company Immersion, according to an announcement by the company. Immersion filed a lawsuit against Apple in early 2016, accusing the company of infringing its patents with 3D Touch, Force Touch, and Apple Watch technologies, as well as vibration patterns used for ringtones and notifications. In today’s very brief announcement, Immersion simply stated that it has “entered into settlement and license agreements with Apple, the terms of which are confidential,” although it adds that it’s a global settlement, and implies that Apple has agreed to license at least some of Immersion’s technology, although it’s unclear which technologies or patents are specifically involved.
