On Monday, US District Judge William Coyle added 27 million and two million US dollars with the previous 23 million and 40 million US dollars. The court ordered the US Tech giant to pay the price for the loss of a university’s patent, according to Reuters reports.

In October of this year, the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation won the case against Apple. Jury, after finishing university patents illegally, has fined 23 million and 40 million US dollars in compensation and profits. The penalty went up to $ 506 million.

Apple’s decision to appeal to this verdict again When contacted by a spokesman for Apple, he refused to comment immediately.

In 2010, the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) filed a lawsuit against Apple in a patent infringement case. Some of Apple’s iPhone ‘Predictor Circuits’ have been used to enhance the processor performance. The circuit was patented by the WARF.

The 2015 jury denied the Apple patent infringement during the trial. Their claim is not right in this patent. Apple also applied for patent reviews of the US Patent and Trademark Office. But at that time their demands were rejected.

Later, in the next year in another iPhone, using the same chip, WARF filed another case against the same patent.
