The Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, the patent licensing arm of the University of Wisconsin, claims in a lawsuit that Apple's A7 processor infringes a university-developed patent that improves "the efficiency and performance of contemporary computer processors."

The suit alleges Apple implemented the patent's technology in the company's 64-bit A7 processor that powers the iPhone 5s, iPad Air, and iPad mini with Retina display. Also that Apple was aware of the patent's existence because it is cited in several newer Apple patents.
