This is one of those rare conspiracy theories that actually turned out to be true. We’re talking about Batterygate, who started out as a people, have the feeling that Apple is deliberately reducing the performance of the older iPhones to sell on later. It appears the company is doing at the moment, but for an entirely different reason that had to do with the battery has a long service life.
Well, here we are, a few years later, and if you are one of the people in the US are affected by this, you can now submit an application for the receipt of compensation from Apple, which will amount to about $25. You can apply if you are a U.S. person who owns, or previously owned an iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPhone SE running iOS 10.2.1 or higher, or an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus is running iOS 11.2 or later, on December 21, 2017.
All of this is possible because, earlier this year, Apple agreed to settle a U.S. class-action lawsuit that accused the secret to a limitation of the older iPhones. The proposed settlement, you will see that Apple is a cash payment of $25 for each qualifying iPhone owner who submits a claim, which adds up to a total payout of between $310 million and $500 million. The exact amount of money each person receives will vary, based on the number of applications received.
If you want to qualify on the basis of the terms and conditions listed above, you can head on over to the this particular web site the set up for this purpose), where you can also submit a request or view your other options, one of which, with the exception of the self from the legal case, in order to retain the possibility of direct action lawsuit filed against Apple over the matter. All claims must be submitted online (or by mail) by October 6th.
It comes as no surprise that Apple has always denied all of the allegations in the suit, and he says that it is only with the establishment of a scheme to “avoid burdensome and costly litigation”. The settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing by Apple.
