Apple plans to bring back in-person classes at its stores
According to Yahoo Finance, Apple has plans to bring back in-person classes at its stores on Aug. 30, but that plan could be delayed in some areas given a surge in Covid-19 cases. Today at Apple classes were launched in 2017 and allowed users to learn how to work with the company’s products. During the pandemic, lessons were held online, and now Apple has decided to return to the offline format.
Lessons will resume at most Apple stores in the US, including stores in New York, but not everywhere. Today at Apple was last held a year and a half ago in March 2020, shortly before many countries went into lockdown due to the pandemic. Apple canceled the masks in stores in June but then reinstated the requirement in recent weeks after the delta variant led to a new wave of virus infections. Also, Apple does not insist that corporate employees return to their offices until at least October.
By a Texas court ruling, Apple Inc. owes $ 300 million to use the company’s wireless technology in iPhones and other products.
A Texas judge upheld the jury’s decision that Apple should pay royalties to PanOptis Patent Management and its Optis Cellular and Unwired Planet divisions for patents owned by the company on the LTE cellular standard. Optis claims that Apple has used Optis’ proprietary technology in its 4G products. The order is received upon completion of the reconsideration of the case related to the patent dispute. In the first trial, a jury awarded Optis $ 506.2 million, according to a Bloomberg report. In April, a US District Court judge upheld the jury’s finding of liability but ordered a new damages trial. The new litigation focused on the amount of royalties Apple was supposed to pay to Optis. Apple plans to appeal this decision.
In addition, Optis is trying to get about $ 7 billion from Apple. In this regard, a judge in the UK is considering the possibility of introducing a global royalty rate. Apple said it could exit the UK market if forced to pay an amount that is “commercially unacceptable.”
