Few years later Apple and Google were seemed like a best partners but now  in mobile map technology is about to become the latest battleground in the two tech giants' escalating war over who dominates the future of computing because Apple does not want to rely on third party like Google or other number of mapping companies including 3D mapping firms that’s why it wants to reduce reliance on third party software by developing its own product for mapping services as evidenced by its acquisitions of mapping expertise and job postings addressing its ambitions for mapping.

But more than revenue, Apple is going after the map market to have more control over a key asset in the widening smartphone war.

The court battle between Apple and Google has reached a settlement. Google Inc.’s Motorola Mobility unit has agreed to settle all patent litigation with Apple Inc. over Smartphones which ends one of the highest-profile lawsuits in technology. The companies said in a statement that the settlement doesn’t include a cross license to their individual patents.

According to the statement, “Apple and Google have also agreed to work together in some areas of patent reform”. Apple and phone manufacturing companies that use the Google Android software have filed dozens of lawsuits against each other around the world to defend their technology. Steve Jobs, Apple’s co-founder, called Android a “stolen product”. The most high-profile case started in 2010 between Apple and Motorola.

The latter accused Apple of infringing several patents including one important to how phones operate on a 3G network. While Apple accused Motorola of violating its patents on specific Smartphone features. The cases were combined in a Chicago federal court. On the other hand, Judge Richard Posner dismissed it in 2012 shortly before trial. He said neither company had enough evidence to prove the case.

Google acquired Motorola Mobility back in 2012 for $12.5 billion. In 2014, Google announced it would be selling Motorola Mobility’s handset business to Lenovo while keeping the vast majority of the patents.
