Samsung owes Apple $539 million for Copying iPhone

Apple used Samsung as a manufacturer of screens and processors for its early iPhone models. After Apple accused Samsung of copying its technology in its Galaxy mobile devices, a legal battle was initiated between the two companies. Apple prevailed in the lawsuit, causing Samsung to pledge to create a "firewall" to prevent unauthorized transfer of technology from its manufacturing to its mobile divisions.[2] However, Apple took its mobile processor manufacturing business to TSMC.[3] In 2020, Apple began shifting orders for future iPhone screens from Samsung to LG.[1]
