It wasn't, as Apple had already won in other courtrooms.

It has lost in other courtrooms as well, hence the recent bans.

Nope, Intel will never deliver 5G modem, they officially said that they quit 5g modem bussiness today. - Qualcomm accuse Apple for leaking QC's tech to Intel - QC and Apple settle down. - Intel quit 5G shortly after. Coincidence?

As Chinese pressure is increasing in telecom sector, it would not be good for two leading American firms to fight with each other. Limiting current Chinese advantage in the field of 5G is very important to protect American interests. There may be suggestions from Administration. Wise decision for both parties.
