Apple faces $506m patent dispute payout
A US judge has ordered Apple to pay more than half a billion dollars to a university after the tech firm failed to abide by an earlier court ruling. Apple was ordered to pay about $234m when it lost the patent case. Apple still hopes to overthrow the fine by appealing against the original jury verdict. Apple did not re-engineer the chips after losing the dispute in 2015 nor pull the relevant products from sale, and thus became liable for the additional payout. The university is also seeking further compensation for Apple's continued infringement of the patent in its A9 and A9X chips, which power its iPhone 6S and iPad Pro models.
