After the Swiss Railway network service accused Apple of copying their trademarked clock design in their iOS 6 clock app, after which Apple has agreed to pay a licensing fee to the network.

The clock face in question hands in the Railways train stations across Sweden and was based on a design by an employee in 1944.

By looking at the two next to each other you can tell that Apple has defiantly purposely copied the company’s design in their iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch clock application, and apparently didn’t even ask permission to do so.

Apple is yet to comment on the situation, and details of the agreement have remained confidential so we will have to let you know more when it’s released.
