Apple Battery Incident Compensation Finally Appears, Some iPhone Users Can Receive Compensation

In 2017, Apple was found to deliberately reduce the performance of the old iPhone models to avoid unauthorized crashes due to aging batteries, but due to Apple’s improper handling of this matter, a large number of users believed that they were deceived and filed a class action lawsuit . In addition to reducing the battery replacement costs of some models afterwards, Apple also said in March this year that it would pay a settlement compensation of US$500 million, and now it is finally open for applications.

According to the website of the US District Court , as long as you are a US user who has an iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, or SE upgraded to iOS 10.2.1 or later before December 21, 2017; and U.S. users who have iPhone 7 and 7 Plus upgraded to iOS 11.2 or later before this date are eligible for this claim.

However, it should be noted that Apple will only pay $500 million in settlement compensation, so although the official estimates that each eligible mobile phone can receive a compensation of $25, the final amount may be less. In addition, The Verge also pointed out that unless you intend to sue Apple for this matter, you should not receive the compensation.
