The purpose of this website is to inform you about a $53 million settlement in a class action
lawsuit against Apple Inc. (“Apple”) for owners of an iPhone or iPod touch
whose device was submitted for repair or replacement in the United States under Apple’s
one-year limited warranty or AppleCare Protection Plan, but was denied
warranty coverage because Apple stated that the iPhone or iPod touch had been
damaged by liquid. Not all recipients of a notice are class members. If the
settlement is court-approved, your rights may be affected.
To qualify for a cash refund, you must: (a) be a United States resident; (b) Apple denied warranty coverage for your iPhone on or before December 31, 2009, OR for your iPod touch on or before June 30, 2010; (c) when it was submitted to Apple for warranty coverage, your iPhone or iPod touch was covered either by its original one-year limited warranty or by an AppleCare Protection Plan; and (d) Apple denied warranty coverage because Apple stated that your iPhone or iPod touch had been damaged by liquid.
Some Settlement Class Members, called “Direct-Payment Settlement Class Members,”
will receive a cash payment even if they do not submit a Claim Form. If the
Settlement Administrator has all the information necessary to process your cash
payment under the settlement, you will be sent a customized notice (by postal
mail and/or email) advising you that you are a Direct-Payment Settlement Class
Member. However, if you are a Direct-Payment Settlement Class Member you will
receive a check only if the Settlement Administrator’s records reflect your
current mailing address, so you should ensure that the notice you
receive reflects your correct mailing address. If it does not, you must provide
or correct it. You can provide or correct your U.S. mail or email address by clicking here.
The extended deadline for providing or correcting your mailing address is December 23, 2013.
If you are not a Direct-Payment Settlement Class Member, you needed to fill out
and submit a valid Claim Form no later than 9:00 p.m. Pacific time on
October 21, 2013 or by mail postmarked no later than October 21, 2013 in order
to receive a cash payment.
