Last month we heard that Apple had reached a licensing deal with Swiss Rail for the use of the Swiss Railway Clock design in Apple’s iOS 6, after the new design was released with iOS 6 without Apple seeking approval of Swiss Rail.
Now details have emerged on how much Apple has paid Swiss Rail to use their iconic design in the latest version of their mobile OS, Apple is paying the company $21 million to use the design.
US tech giant Apple has dished out 20 million Swiss francs ($21 million, 17 million euros) to compensate Swiss national rail operator SBB for using its famous clock without permission, a Swiss daily reported Saturday.
The company agreed in October to pay the lump sum so it could continue using SBB’s Swiss-designed station clock face on its iPads and iPhones, the Tages-Anzeiger daily reported on its website, quoting several unnamed sources.
The Swiss Railway Clock was originally designed by Swiss engineer Hans Hilfiker in 1944, and the design is still used by the Swiss Railways today.
