When Apple filed for a $50 billion patent war, many believed it would simply use its enormous fortune to create a cash cow.
That’s what a $10 billion valuation is for a company.
But the iPhone and iPad maker has a lot more to spend on intellectual property, including patents.
That is because it will likely spend hundreds of billions more on new products over the next few years.
In other words, Apple will have a much larger patent portfolio than expected, as the tech giant continues to work on new and innovative products.
