Terms of the settlement, filed in the US District Court for the Northern District of California, were not available. How much, if anything, Samsung must pay Apple under Wednesday's settlement could not immediately be learned.
The legal war between Apple and Samsung is finally over.
Apple first sued the Korean technology giant back in 2011, and it won the case in 2012.
The patent dispute between Apple and Samsung is by far the most publicised and most expensive legal dispute of the tech world.
The Court filing also states that the "remaining claims and counterclaims in this action are hereby dismissed with prejudice", and another case can not be filed on the same claim. Apple declined to comment on the agreement, but an Apple rep referred CNN to a company statement released last month that said, "Apple ignited the smartphone revolution with iPhone and it is a fact that Samsung blatantly copied our design".
"This case has always been about more than money", the statement read. In December 2016, the court sided unanimously with Samsung's argument that a patent violator does not have to hand over the entire profit it made from stolen designs if those designs covered only certain portions of a product but not the entire object.
Samsung's lawyers appealed the case, bringing down the compensation of $1 billion to $400 million in 2015 at the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
Samsung had previously paid Apple $548 million, of which $399 million was for products that infringed the design patents plus more for infringing a utility patent that was not at issue in the retrial, according to a Bloomberg report. The dispute costed both companies billions of Ringgit in litigation costs and penalties over the years, but it also changed the way patent laws worked in the US.
