Apple has been ordered to pay a whopping $506 million by a US district court for infringing the patent of a US University. Judge Conley said at the time that Apple could be ordered to pay as much as $862.4 million damages if WARF was able to prove its case. Apple found itself on the losing end of an infringement lawsuit from the group in October 2015 when a jury ruled the A7, A8, and A8X processors were using technology covered by a patent the school holds. The technology giant is guilty of violating a patent filed by the University of Wisconsin-Madison's patent licensing arm.
U.S. District Judge William Conley decreed the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) should be awarded an additional $272 million after a jury originally adjudicated $234 million in compensation, according to Reuters. Apple requested that the U.S. Patent office review the validity of the patent but that request was turned down. That's a little over double what a jury awarded WARF last fall.

'Kaalakaandi' teaser out: Meet the craziest ever Saif Ali Khan here

The suit goes all the way back to 2014 when the university accused Apple of infringing a patent titled, "Table based data speculation circuit for parallel processing computer". That strategy worked well in the trial against Samsung, but it's now Apple's turn to taste the bitter medicine called USA patent system.
The patent applies to a "predictor circuit" created to speed processing by predicting user instructions. With the added fine and interest piled on top of the original ruling, Apple is now looking at a $506 million verdict, assuming it stands up to appeal. In a separate lawsuit, WARF claims that Apple's A9 and A9X processors also infringe on the same patent.
