The heads of Apple and Samsung have agreed to meet in a bid to resolve a patent case between the two in a California court.

The move follows an order by a United States judge that the companies take part in a settlement conference led by a magistrate judge.

The two companies have sued each other over technology used in smartphones and tablet PCs.

Apple and Samsung are fighting patent cases in various other countries as well.
