Apple wins patent infringement case over Samsung

In result, the court awarded Apple $119.6 million in damages for multiple alleged patent infringements by Samsung. The South Korea tech giant appealed, and the case made its way up through the court system.    However the highest court in the land apparently did not want to do anything with this case and as of Monday officially declined to hear it.

 

“Slide to unlock” is the feature that most of smartphone users are familiar with, the court battle also focused on other patents-like an Apple feature that turned data into links (think phone numbers).

 

The decision by the Supreme Court to let a lower court’s decision stand – leaves Samsung with a substantially high price fine. It is interesting that it comes at a time when the “slide to unlock” feature on Apple phones has stopped being the primary way to unlock the Apple devices.  On the current iOS , people either use Touch ID, Face ID or double tap the Home button to bring up the password screen.

 

Of course Apple court case over Samsung it is not over yet. These two companies need to determine in a court of law -just how much Samsung actually has to pay Apple for infringing on the latter company’s designs.
