Like many of you, I have had an iPhone for many, many years and paid quite a lot for them.  When I heard that I could possibly get some of my money back from Apple, I got really excited about it.  Turns out, it's only $25.00.

According to Lifehacker.com, Apple admitted to putting degraded batteries in to their iOS devices for the purpose of, so says Apple via this report, improving battery life.  That led to a class action suit and a payout of $500 million settlement to consumers.

The terms of the settlement say that if you owned any of the following devices before December 21, 2017, you could receive $25, according to the lifehacker report. 

  • An iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus or SE that ran iOS 10.2.1 or later
  • An iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus that ran iOS 11.2 or later

I do qualify for a piece of this settlement.  I owned an iPhone SE that I just loved, but...I'm not sure I'll go through the process of getting the money.  It just seems like a lot of information that I have to give in order to get it, even though they already have all my info.  Maybe if it were more, I'd think about it, but I remember one similar settlement regarding electricity providers that I took the time to actually try to claim and didn't receive a thing.

I just got a pair of Apple Earbuds, so they got more of my money this past week.  I hope there isn't something intentionally wrong with them, cuz I really like them and don't want them to break.  I also don't want to upgrade, thank you very much.
