It has been determined that 400 million Apple devices that infringe the troll's patents have been sold.
The October ruling related specifically to older Apple devices, while the latest $502.6 million sum covers Apple's newer devices.
Apple has been ordered to pay $502.6 million to VirnetX for infringing patents for VPN on Demand with its FaceTime application, bringing the total amount of damages in the case to almost $1 billion dollars.
The dispute has bounced between the district court, patent office and Federal Circuit since 2010.
Bloomberg notes, however, that this could be a short-lived victory for VirnetX.
The case is now being reviewed by the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, which will determine whether or not VirnetX's patents are actually invalid.
Over two years ago, VirnetX announced that it was seeking $532 million in damages from Apple over patent infringements relating to iMessage, FaceTime, and VPN technologies.
In a statement to Bloomberg, VirnetX CEO Kendall Larsen called the damages amount "fair".
The battle between VirnetX and Apple has been ongoing for years. The case isn't dead yet though, the U.S. legal system has plenty of room for additional appeals and Apple is exploring those options already. A jury in that case awarded $302 million that a judge later increased to $439.7 million.
The Patent Trial and Appeal Board has ruled the patents invalid, which VirnetX is appealing.
