Apple Resolves Lawsuit Filed by iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus Users for $35 Million

Apple has settled a class action suit concerning the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, agreeing to pay $35 million to those who owned one of these handsets between September 16, 2016, and January 3, 2023. The issues that led to the lawsuit include problems with the speaker buttons, Siri, the Voice Memos app, microphone fidelity, and other audio-related issues. Some of these problems were caused by iOS 11.3, according to a leaked memo from Apple to authorized repair centers. To qualify for a share of the settlement fund, class members must have owned an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus during the mentioned timeframe and have a documented complaint with Apple regarding the speaker issues, or have paid Apple to repair or replace their device. Postcards and emails are being sent to those who are eligible to receive a share of the settlement fund. The deadline to indicate the preferred method of payment is June 3rd, and failure to do so will result in forfeiture of the settlement claim and the opportunity to sue Apple for this issue. If class members decide to opt out of the settlement, they will not receive a share of the settlement payments but will still have the opportunity to sue Apple. Additionally, they can send a letter to the court by June 3rd to explain what they do not like about the settlement or object to the settlement and request to speak at a hearing on July 18th. It’s important to note that although Apple settled the suit for $35 million, the final amount distributed to the “Settlement Class” will be subject to deductions for legal fees.
