Thinking Of Staking Your Claim In Apple’s $500 Million Iphone Slowdown Settlement?

If the iPhone “batterysaga”
was not the biggest Apple controversies in recent years then don’t
know what is real anymore. A lawsuit was fired when Apple was caught throttling
iPhones with aging batteries. But hey – you can also register and get your share of the settlement.


Apparently, there’s a
whole website that gives US consumers who possessed the effected iPhone a
platform to file their claims. However, to be eligible, you need to own
the following:

  • An iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 6S, or an iPhone SE that ran iOS 10.2.1 or later before December
    21st, 2017.
  • An iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus that ran iOS 11.2 or later before December 21st, 2017

Apple has actually
agreed to pay a maximum of $500 million as part of its settlement. The tech
giant will “provide cash of approximately $25/device.” But there’s a strong
possibility that this number would go down in case the approved
claims exceed $500 million. If you want, you may also stay away from claiming on the website. But only do that if you plan on suing the company

To file a claim, you
need to provide the serial number of your iPhone. And you may even utilize the
search tool in case the information is no more accessible. This rule applies
in case you sold your phone to someone else.

You can check the FAQ
section on the website to find out when you may receive the check. If the judge
signs the settlement as per its schedule, then you’ll receive the payment

Apple has time and
again apologized for its mishandling and the drama that was caused in 2017. The
lack of transparency was really brought into question and for that, it lost the
major value and integrity.
