Louisiana residents who owned an iPhone 7 will get a refund

If you owned an iPhone 7, you could potentially get hundreds of dollars back from Apple.

A $35 million class action settlement was reached related to microphone or audio issues for Apple’s iPhone 7 or 7 Plus.

Settlement details

The settlement stems from a 2019 lawsuit filed by Joseph Casillas and De’Jhontai Banks, who claimed they began experiencing problems the year after purchasing their iPhone 7 devices in 2017.

However, Apple denied in the settlement that the devices had any such problems and denied any allegations of wrongdoing. Despite that claim, the two sides reached an agreement so that Apple would avoid further costs.

Who is eligible for part of the settlement?

Under the class action settlement, those who owned an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus between September 15, 2016 and January 3, 2023 and complained to Apple about audio problems or needed repairs can receive a nice payout.

Those of you who paid Apple for repairs or replacements can get up to $349, while those who complained about the problem to Apple but didn’t pay out of pocket for repairs are eligible for up to $125.

The minimum wage for qualifying claims is $50.

When is the deadline and how do you file a claim?

The deadline to file a claim is June 3, 2024 and can be done via the settlement website.
