Apple Inc. was hit with a $145 million patent infringement verdict in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California Wednesday over technology in many popular iPhone models.

A jury found Apple infringed on voice-over LTE technology (VoLTE), which supports voice calls on an LTE network, patented by plaintiff Canadian technology company WiLAN. Specifically, the case before Judge Dana M. Sabraw hinged on two WiLAN patents covering technology in various iPhone 6 and 7 models. As such, Apple was ordered to pay $145 million in damages.
