Apple has agreed to pay up to $500m (£391m) to settle a long-running legal dispute over whether it deliberately slowed down iPhones to force customers to buy newer and more expensive models.
Customers in the US could be in line for a $25 payout per iPhone if the the preliminary class-action settlement is approved by US district judge Edward Davila in California.
The agreement covers iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus.
All phones must have been in use before December 17 2017 to be applicable. Apple has denied any wrongdoing and said it agreed to settle to avoid expensive legal fees, according to documents filed in a Californian court.
Critics had long accused the trillion-dollar company of “planned obsolescence”, using software updates to limit phone performance ahead of a new iPhone release.
