Your Chance to Get Your Share of Money From Apple Incorporated Class Action Settlement

You may be eligible for your share of a minimum of $310,000,000.00 and as much as $500,000,000.00 from a class action settlement which was reached in mediation if you had purchased specific iPhone products from Apple Incorporated prior to Thursday, December 21, 2017…

…but you must electronically submit your claim with a valid claim no later than Monday, October 6, 2020 using this form; and you must be a legal resident of the United States in order to be a member of the class action lawsuit settlement.

The plaintiffs claimed in a consolidated class action lawsuit pending against Apple that a performance management feature diminished the performance of some of the affected devices. Apple denies all allegations and is entering into this settlement to avoid burdensome and costly litigation. The settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing by Apple.

The models of iPhone which were affected by the performance management feature — as well as the operating systems which were introduced to them — include:

  • iPhone 6 in iOS 10.2.1 or later
  • iPhone 6 Plus in iOS 10.2.1 or later
  • iPhone 6s in iOS 10.2.1 or later
  • iPhone 6s Plus in iOS 10.2.1 or later
  • iPhone SE devices in iOS 10.2.1 or later
  • iPhone 7 in iOS 11.2 or later
  • iPhone 7 Plus in iOS 11.2 or later

Excluding Yourself From — or Objecting To — This Lawsuit

You can choose to exclude yourself from — or object to — this class-action lawsuit.

If you prefer to submit your claim via postal mail instead of electronically, send it — ensure that it is postmarked by Monday, October 6, 2020 — to:

In re Apple Inc. Device Performance Litigation
ATTN: Claims Administrator
1650 Arch Street
Suite 2230
Philadelphia, PA 19103

If you would prefer to exclude yourself from this settlement so that you may sue on your own behalf, you must complete and mail your request for exclusion — including your name, mailing address, telephone number, eligible class iPhone serial number, and signed with your signature — so that it is received no later than Monday, October 6, 2020 to:

In re Apple Inc. Device Performance Litigation
ATTN: Opt Out
PO Box 60257
Philadelphia, PA 19102

If you have any objections to the settlement, you must mail your objections or notice of intent to appear at the final approval hearing so that they are received no later than Monday, October 6, 2020.

The court will hold a final hearing at 10:00 in the morning Pacific Standard Time on December 4, 2020, at:

United States District Court for the Northern District of California
San Jose Division
Courtroom 4 on the fifth floor
280 South 1st Street
San Jose, California 95113

At the final hearing, the court will consider whether the settlement is fair, reasonable, and adequate. If there are objections, the court will consider them.

Summary

If you do decide to participate in this settlement, completion of the claim form supposedly will consume only a few minutes of your time; but do not expect any major windfall, as you will not exactly get rich from this settlement — expect up to $25.00 per eligible device — but that may be better than nothing at all.
