Apple offers warranty settlement to customers

Wired reported that Apple has agreed to pay $ 53 million to settle the lawsuit, which was filed in 2010 for non-warranty on certain models of the iPhone or iPod Touch.


The settlement, which shall be published in the Federal Court in San Francisco in the next couple of weeks, offers cash compensation to possibly one hundred thousand clients using iPhone and iPod Touch, which claim that Apple does not perform a standard two-year or extended warranty.

"According to several lawsuits combined in San Francisco, no matter what the problem, Apple refused to honor warranties if a white indicator tape embedded in the phone near the headphone or charging portals had turned pink or red. However, the tape’s maker, 3M, said humidity, and not water contact, could have caused the color to at least turn pink."

The lawsuit includes units: the original iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and the first, second and third generation iPod Touch. Wired noted that potential payout could be about $ 200 or less, depending on the number of claims are submitted.

Apple's attorney, Noreen King signed the resolution. Wired noted that Apple has not acknowledged any wrongdoing and payments must be approved by a judge.
