How to Claim Your Cash From Apple’s iPhone-Slowdown Lawsuit

Do not forget that IPhone battery limitation news back in 2017? If Apple has slowed down your iPhone, you may be able to claim “around $ 25” from a $ 500 million settlement.

Here is who is eligible, according to the official regulation site:

You may be entitled to settlement indemnities if you are or were (1) an American owner of an iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus and / or an SE device (2) that was running iOS 10.2. 1 or later or, in the case of iPhone 7 and 7 Plus devices, which were running iOS 11.2 or later before December 21, 2017, and (3) you have experienced a decrease in performance on your device (s).

If this applies to you, you can go to the settlement website and submit a complaint online or by mail. You will need the serial number of the affected iPhone, but a form on the website will allow you to search for it with information such as the Apple ID, name and address you used on the 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 money pot that anyone can claim. However, you will get something if you are eligible – and that is more than you would have gotten before filing this lawsuit.

Of course, Apple has denied any wrongdoing. This is how these colonies work.

By the way, this problem has been resolved in newer versions of the iPhone’s iOS operating system: Apple will now notify you if it slows down your iPhone due to an old battery and allows you to make a choice.
