Apple has agreed to pay Proview $60 million to settle a dispute over the iPad trademark in China, reports the Associated Press.

"The iPad dispute resolution is ended," the Guangdong High People's Court said in a statement. "Apple Inc. has transferred $60 million to the account of the Guangdong High Court as requested in the mediation letter."

According to the Associated Press, Proview was looking for a larger sum but felt pressure to settle due to appease its creditors.

Proview hoped for more money but felt pressure to settle because it needs to pay debts, said a lawyer for the company, Xie Xianghui. He said the company had hoped for as much as $400 million and might still be declared bankrupt in a separate legal proceeding despite the infusion of settlement money.

He was a great man, it is he who create Apple that lead to the emergence of some affiliated industry, such as apple cases, apple cables, apple chargers, etc. Our website appears with these apple devices. All success we create should owe to Jobs.
