The Court of Appeal has rejected Apple’s appeal against a ruling which found it infringed two patents on technology it uses in its iPhones and iPads.
Optis Cellular Technology first sued Apple over the way it used Optis’ the patented technologies, which it said were essential for 4G connectivity and were found to be used by Apple’s iPhones.
In 2022 the High Court ruled that two of Optis’ 4G patents cloud be deemed standard essential patents and that Apple had infringed them.
In summer 2021, a jury in Texas awarded $300 million in damages to Optis Wireless to be paid by Apple because the 4G tech in its iPhones, iPads, and watches were deemed to have infringed Optis’s communications patents.
The ruling followed an initial $506 million award in damages after which Apple later persuaded the Judge to order a retrial.
