Some Apple iPhone customers can now submit claims as part of a $500 million class action lawsuit settlement related to accusations the tech giant slowed on some older devices.
The settlement, announced in March, covers customers who purchased iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus or the iPhone SE before Dec. 21, 2017 and experienced a slowdown in service.
The settlement covers $25 with a limit of one cash payment per device. A separate claim must be filed for each device owned. You can submit a claim online or via mail.
Covered devices are:
1. iPhone 6 (iOS 10.2.1 or later)
2. iPhone 6s (iOS 10.2.1 or later)
3. iPhone 6s Plus (iOS 10.2.1 or later)
4. iPhone SE (iOS 10.2.1 or later)
5. iPhone 7 (iOS 11.2 or later)
6. iPhone 7 Plus (iOS 11.2 or later)
People submitting applications will need to know their device’s serial number or, if you don’t know that number, use the search tool through the Apple ID feature. (Need help finding your serial number? MacWorld has some ideas.)
