Apple (AAPL) and Samsung (SSNGY) are set to face each other again in court at the end of March after the two companies failed to resolve their patent dispute in the U.S. during mediation that included Tim Cook and Samsung co-CEO J.K. Shin.

The latest trial will involve Apple IP that Samsung allegedly breached in relatively recent products, including the Galaxy S III smartphone.

Separately, Apple will issue a software update "very soon" to fix a security flaw in PCs running the company's Mac OS X operating system. The glitch leaves email, financial information and other sensitive data exposed.

On Friday, Apple released a fix for mobile devices running iOS.
