My understanding is that it is the collusion that was illegal, not the terms of the contracts themselves.

In two years time they are free to renegotiate agency agreements provided they do not collude to bring about a fixed pricing agreement as a cartel.

Note though that Apple is banned from pursuing a 'most favoured nation' clause for five years, rather than two.
