Apple Settles Class Action Suit Regarding iPhone 4 Antenna


Apple has reportedly settled a class action suit over the iPhone 4's antenna.

The settlement comes from 18 separate lawsuits that were consolidated into one. All share the claim that Apple was "misrepresenting and concealing material information in the marketing, advertising, sale, and servicing of its iPhone 4--particularly as it relates to the quality of the mobile phone antenna and reception and related software."

As far as you remember, the iPhone 4, since its launch, had been experiencing problems with its external antenna. Some customers were affected by low signals and dropped calls. Apple held a press conference to explained the situation and offered U.S. residents who bought the iPhone 4 $15 refund or a bumper case provided by Apple for free.

The Loop's Jim Dalrymple has obtained a statement from Apple on the settlement:

“This settlement relates to a small number of customers who indicated that they experienced antenna or reception issues with their iPhone 4 and didn’t want to take advantage of a free case from Apple while it was being offered in 2010,” Apple spokeswoman Natalie Harrison told me on Saturday.
