Since 2014 Apple was on trial with another wireless technology development company called WiLAN and The San Diego jury recently determined that the firm headed by Tim Cook must pay compensation of $ 85 million.
WiLAN accused Cupertino-based companies of infringing patents related to wireless communications on its iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 models. In 2018, the jury concluded that the apple firm had to pay 145 million dollars.
However, after appeals made by the brand founded by Steve Jobs, a new testing process was carried out and he will now have to pay $ 85 million, according to Bloomberg.
At the moment, it is not clear if this will be a final resolution since the sentence could have cost more. It is important to note that iPhone 6 sales reached around 102,000 million dollars while those of the iPhone 7 were more than 141,319 million dollars only in its first year of launch.
