ARKANSAS, USA — Attorney General Leslie Rutledge announced Wednesday (Nov. 18) a $113 million settlement with Apple Inc. regarding Apple’s 2016 decision to throttle, or slow down, consumers’ iPhone speeds in order to address unexpected shutdowns in some iPhones.
Arkansas will receive $4,295,115.09 under terms of the settlement.
Rutledge and 32 other attorneys general worked together on the lawsuit.
Based on the multi-state investigation, the attorneys general allege that Apple discovered battery issues were leading to unexpected shutdowns in iPhones.
Rather than disclosing these issues or replacing batteries, however, Apple concealed the issues from consumers.
