By Rahul Bhagat 04.07.2023

Nokia has signed a long-term 5G license deal with Apple, allowing its mobile technology patents to be used.

The agreement's details remain confidential, but it is believed to involve patents related to 5G technology.

The new agreement will replace the current license set to expire at the end of 2023.

Nokia's patent portfolio includes over 5,500 patent families declared essential to 5G, totaling 20,000 patent families.

The company emphasizes its contributions to open standards and fair licensing terms for innovative technologies.

Once a dominant player in the mobile phone industry, Nokia failed to keep up with iOS and Android ecosystems, leading to a decline in market share.
