Apple cannot use iPad name in China - level 1, A11

Apple has a big problem. It cannot use the name iPad in China. It is a very difficult situation because Apple started to use this name in China in 2009, when it bought the name from one Chinese company. But Apple bought it only from one part of the company, not from the bosses of the company. And it is a problem.

The company says that the contract for iPad is not correct. The company says that Apple cannot use this name now. Also, the company wants 1 500 000 000 dollars from Apple because Apple used the name iPad in China.

It is a problem for Apple because it is a lot of money. It will also be difficult to change the name.
