A San Diego Jury has fined apple in a whooping $32 million dollars for the infringemnet of three Qualcomm-owned patents in the iPhone.
The lawsuit was first filed against Apple in 2017 and there are three patents involved. The first relates to battery efficiency when it comes to processing graphics. The second has to do with how phones quickly connect to the internet after they’re turned on. The third and final patent has to do with managing data traffic in a way that allows apps to download data quicker.
The $32 million in damages equates to $1.41 per iPhone that infringes on patents, and while that amount is spare change for Apple and Qualcomm
