Will you get your share of 113 million dollars from Apple?
Apple will pay 113-million dollars to settle allegations from nearly three dozen states the company concealed battery life issues to get users to buy new devices.
In what many called ‘Batterygate,’ states alleged the company discovered battery issues that led to phone crashes. Instead of bringing light to the issue, they say Apple concealed the problem from consumers. Not surprisingly, the company didn’t admit wrongdoing as part of the settlement.
What does that mean for Apple users? If you applied for your $25 worth of the $500-million class-action settlement, you’ll get your money sometime after a judge approves the deal. If you didn’t, you’re out of luck – new claims are no longer being accepted. That’s expected to come after a fairness hearing to come after a fairness hearing next month.
