In the course of the “Batterygate” scandal, Apple had to settle $500 million with affected customers, and payments have now begun. Specifically, about 3 million users mostly pre-2018 iPhone models who participated in the legal action against Apple will receive up to $90 each.
The settlement came after a judge rejected Apple’s appeal of a class-action lawsuit filed in 2017, paving the way for compensation for affected users of Apple’s software throttling of iPhones. for older models. iOS updates have intentionally limited the overall performance of phones with older batteries to prevent devices from shutting down in battery-strained situations.
Apple claimed that it did not aim to trick its customers into buying a newer iPhone, but to extend the life of older iPhones. The phones performance will return to normal when someone changes the battery.
In any case, it is emphasized that the settlement does not constitute an admission by Apple that it did something wrong somewhere. Only those who participated in the collective action prior to October 6, 2020 will be able to receive compensation and it primarily affects users of iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, and SE models with iOS 10.2.1 or iPhone 7 and 7 Plus with iOS 11.2.
