Apple Agrees To Pay $113 Million To Settle ‘Batterygate’ Case Over iPhone Slowdowns
In March, Apple agreed to pay up to $500 million to settle claims of intentionally slowing down older phones. That settlement called for Apple to pay consumers at least $25 per iPhone, though some consumers who had already spent hundreds on new devices saw the payments as too little, too late.
As part of Wednesday’s settlement, $113 million will be distributed among the states, including California, Tennessee and Pennsylvania. In Arizona, the funds will cover attorneys’ fees and will be used to fund future consumer protection investigations, according to the state’s attorney general’s office.
