The “Batterygate” issue came to light again. This year, Apple will pay between $310 million and $500 million. About 30 lakh people will benefit from this agreement. The litigation process, known as “Batterygate”, began in 2018. The company was accused of slowing down the overall performance of older iPhones by making updates to its iOS mobile platform.
The firm did not accept any responsibility for this and stated that it was a result of the nature of the batteries. As a result, a legal settlement was reached to compensate those affected. The deadline to sign up ended on October 6, 2020.
Apple apologized for the lack of transparency and reduced the price of iPhone battery replacements to $29.00 USD in 2018.
Apple will have to pay between $310 and $500 million to settle the lawsuit. The itemized amount per claimant is $92.17 USD.
Only 3.3 million users submitted claims before the deadline, increasing the number per applicant.
As users have announced on social networks, Apple has already begun to make payments received from the agreement.
The company keeps updating iPhones from time to time to guarantee the useful life of the devices.
However successful these readjustments may be, they may go unnoticed or, in the worst case, render the device obsolete.
