Remember back in 2017, when Apple came out and admitted that it was throttling iOS devices with degraded batteries? The decision—which the company claimed was all about improving battery life—led to a class-action lawsuit and an eventual $500 million settlement. The terms of the settlement provide cash payments “of approximately $25 per eligible device.” You could qualify for this settlement if you own or owned an iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus or SE that ran iOS 10.2.1 or later or an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus that ran iOS 11.2 or later before December 21, 2017.  Visit by October 6, 2020 and complete the online form. You will need your phone(s) serial number.  If you don’t have it handy, you can search for it by entering some additional information into the online claim form. You won’t see your money right away. The settlement FAQ notes that the judge in the case could sign off on the deal after the final hearing on December 4—but if there are any appeals, the process could drag on longer and delay payouts. And if more than $500 million is claimed, your individual payment could be less than $25.
