California jury says Apple has to fork out $85 million to WiLan

A jury in San Diego, California jury says Apple must pay WiLan $85 million for patent infringement to WiLan, as reported by Bloomberg. This is all part of an ongoing legal battle.

In August 2018, a federal jury in California awarded Canadian patent licensing company WiLan $145.1 million in damages against Apple for patent infringement. However, in January 2019 this was slashed to $10 million by a California jury.

The lawsuits concern Apple’s alleged use of WiLAn’s 4G and LTE technologies found in most of Apple’s products. WiLan was established in 1992 to develop and commercialize technology that made low-cost, high-speed wireless networking a reality.
