Welcome to the Information Website for the Grace et al. v. Apple Inc. Settlement.
If you own or owned a non-jailbroken Apple iPhone 4 or Apple iPhone 4S device that, on April 16, 2014, had an iOS 6 or earlier operating system, and if you were in California on that date, you could get a payment from a class action settlement.
A settlement has been reached with Apple Inc. in a class action lawsuit alleging that Apple Inc. (“Apple” or the “Defendant”) interfered with “FaceTime” for iOS 6 and earlier operating systems on April 16, 2014. The lawsuit alleged that this caused Apple’s FaceTime feature to no longer work on Apple iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S devices unless users updated the operating system on their devices to the then-current iOS 7 release. Apple denies all allegations of wrongdoing.
You may be included in this Settlement as a “Class Member” and entitled to receive a payment if you owned a “non-jailbroken” Apple iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S device that, on April 16, 2014, ran iOS 6 or an earlier operating system, and if you were in California on that date. The criteria to be a “Class Member” are defined more fully on the Frequently Asked Questions page.
