Apple had established FRAND (Truthful, Affordable, and Non-Discriminatory) offers with Nokia, however by means of shifting patents to patent keeping corporations, further royalties will also be demanded.

In reaction, Nokia filed 40 patent infringement court cases ^(http://www.appmarsh.com/2018/12/21/nokia-apple-patent-lawsuit/) in opposition to Apple throughout 11 international locations, accusing the Cupertino corporate of failing to determine licensing offers for Nokia patents that duvet shows, person interface, device, antenna, chipsets, and video coding.

In step with Apple, Nokia has been conspiring with patent statement entities (Acacia Analysis and Conversant Belongings Control) in an “unlawful patent switch scheme” to wring cash out of Apple as a result of Nokia’s mobile phone trade is failing. Nokia, in the meantime, says that it has now not been ready to achieve a licensing settlement with Apple and will have to shield its rights.
