Jury finds Apple infringed on a Univeristy of Wisconsin patent with the A7, A8 and A8X chipsets
A jury has ruled that Apple infringed on a patent owned by the University of Wisconsin-Madison's licensing arm, and could be forced to pay as much as $862 million in damages. The patent covers a method used to make processors run more efficiently, and was found to be used by Apple on its A7, A8 and A8X chipsets.

The A7 is found inside the Apple iPhone 5s, while the A8 is employed by the Apple iPhone 6, Apple iPhone 6 Plus and Apple iPad mini 4. The Apple iPad Air 2 is powered by the A8X. Apple's legal team tried to convince the jury that the patent in question was not valid. The tech titan filed a request with the USPTO to review the patent, but the request was denied by the agency.

Apple could end up on the hook for even more money. The Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, which brought the first case, has filed a separate suit that covers the new A9 and A9X chipsets. The former can be found inside the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus, while the latter drives the new 12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro.

Thanks for the tip!
