You can now stake your claim in Apple’s $500 million iPhone slowdown settlement


Apple will pay out up to $25 per device The iPhone “batterygate” saga was one of the bigger controversies that Apple has ever faced. Apple’s throttling of iPhones with aging batteries prompted a class action lawsuit, and now you can register to get your chunk of the settlement that was reached earlier this year. Per MacRumors, there’s now a website where US consumers who owned an affected iPhone can go to file a claim.


To meet the criteria, you must currently or have previously owned:
An iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, and / 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

As part of the settlement terms, Apple agreed to pay out a maximum of $500 million. The company will “provide a cash payment of approximately $25 per eligible device,” though that number can go down if the total number of approved claims exceeds the $500 million cap. You can also exclude yourself from the settlement at the website. The only real reason for doing so would be if you plan to sue Apple directly about the battery management issue.

The claims website will ask for your iPhone’s serial number. There’s also a search tool if you no longer have access to that information — in case you sold or otherwise got rid of one of the iPhones that are part of the case.
