Remember the iPhone battery limit news in 2017? If Apple has slowed down your iPhone, you may be eligible to claim “about $ 25” in a settlement of a $ 500 million lawsuit.
Here’s who’s eligible, according to the official website of the village:
You may be entitled to settlement benefits if you own or were (1) the owner in the United States of an iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus and / or SE (2) running iOS 10.2. 1 or later or, in the case of iPhone 7 and 7 Plus devices running iOS 11.2 or later prior to December 21, 2017, and (3) you have experienced decreased performance of your device (s).
If this applies to you, you can go to the settlement website and submit a complaint either online or by mail. You will need the serial number of the affected iPhone, but there is a form on the website that will allow you to search for it with information such as Apple ID, name and address you used on the phone. ‘iPhone.
You must submit your claim before October 6, 2020.
Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that you will get $ 25 from this settlement. This is how these things usually work – companies will pay “up” to a certain amount, but as more and more people apply the payment will be reduced for everyone. There is a fixed pot of money that anyone can claim. However, you will get something if you qualify – and it’s more than what you would have got before you filed this lawsuit.
Apple has denied any wrongdoing, of course. This is how these settlements operate.
By the way, this problem has been fixed in newer versions of iPhone iOS operating system: Apple now informs you if it slows down your iPhone due to old battery and allows you to make a choice.
