iPhone, iPod warranties
A lawsuit was filed against Apple Inc. by consumers who claimed that they were wrongfully denied warranty coverage by stating that their iPhones and iPod Touches had been damaged by liquid because a “liquid contact indicator” visible through the headphone jack or dock connector had turned pink or red. Apple denies the allegations, according to a website set up to handle claims.
The settlement amounts vary by products and the amount of memory they have. The refunds apply to iPhones that were denied warranty coverage before Dec. 31, 2009 and iPod Touches that were denied warranty coverage before June 30, 2010.
The deadline to submit a claim is Oct. 21.
