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.
