Apple doesn’t find itself apologizing often, but it’s a big deal when it does — like in 2017, after customers realized the company had been quietly throttling the speed of older iPhones. Apple quickly explained it was designed to protect those phones from aging batteries and offered $29 battery replacements to smooth things over, but lawsuits followed, with the company first agreeing to a $500 million class action settlement earlier this year. yoQ世界播

苹果发现自己并不经常道歉,但当它道歉时,这是一件大事-就像2017年,在消费者意识到公司一直在悄悄地降低老款iPhone的速度后。苹果很快解释说,它的设计是为了保护这些手机免受电池老化的影响,并提供了29美元的电池更换费用,以平息问题,但诉讼接踵而至,该公司在今年早些时候首次同意支付5亿美元的集体诉讼和解协议。yoQ世界播


Now, the company’s agreed to a second settlement — this time, with 34 US states — that might see the company paying an additional $113 million. The states attorneys general had sued Apple for hiding both the throttling and battery degradation from iPhone owners, arguing that Apple “fully understood” that by concealing the issues, it could spend a year profiting off of people who thought they needed to buy a new iPhone, when they only really needed to replace their phone’s battery to avoid throttling or unexpected shutdowns. yoQ世界播

现在,该公司同意与美国34个州达成第二项和解,可能会额外支付1.13亿美元。州总检察长起诉苹果公司对iPhone用户隐瞒了节流和电池劣化问题,辩称苹果“完全明白”,隐瞒这些问题可以花一年时间从那些认为需要购买新iPhone的人身上获利,而实际上他们只需要更换手机电池,以避免节流或意外关机。yoQ世界播


Apple denied that, of course, and the settlement means a court won’t decide whether there was any actual wrongdoing. yoQ世界播

当然,苹果否认了这一点,和解意味着法院不会决定是否存在任何实际的不当行为。yoQ世界播


The settlement (PDF) hasn’t been fully approved by a judge yet, but there’s a chance states might see their money sooner than actual iPhone owners. If you applied for your $25 worth of the $500 million class-action settlement, you probably did so in July, but the process is still underway. There’s a fairness hearing on December 4th that’ll decide whether the settlement was handled properly. Currently, Apple will pay a minimum of $310 million to settle that earlier lawsuit and up to $500 million depending on the number of claims. It’s too late to submit new claims now, as the deadline ended in October. yoQ世界播

和解协议(PDF)还没有得到法官的完全批准,但各州有可能比实际的iPhone用户更早看到他们的钱。如果你申请了5亿美元集体诉讼和解协议中的25美元,你很可能是在7月份申请的,但这一过程仍在进行中。12月4日将举行公平听证会,决定和解协议是否得到妥善处理。目前,苹果将支付最低3.1亿美元来了结之前的诉讼,根据索赔数量的不同,最高将支付5亿美元。现在提交新的索赔为时已晚,因为截止日期在10月份已经结束。yoQ世界播
