SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — California jurors are slated to start a second full day of deliberations in a closely watched patent trial pitting the world's two top smartphone makers against each other.

The four men and four women are scheduled to resume their deliberations Thursday in San Jose federal court. They began deliberating behind closed doors late Tuesday afternoon.

Apple accuses Samsung of copying iPhone features in creating its line of smartphones. Samsung has countersued, claiming Apple ripped off its technology in creating the iPhone.

Apple is seeking $2.2 billion, and Samsung asked jurors for a little more than $6 million.

A previous jury awarded Apple $930 million after a 2012 trial involving Samsung's older generation devices. That jury deliberated for about three days before reaching a verdict.
