A US judge has rejected Apple's demand to increase the 1.05 billion US dollar (£899 million) damages a jury ordered Samsung Electronics to pay its fiercest rival in the smartphone market.

US District Judge Lucy Koh also rejected demands from both companies to conduct another trial on different issues over claims that the South Korean company unfairly used technology controlled by Apple to build its iPads and iPhones to market knock-off products.
