Have an iPhone 6 or 7? Now you can submit a claim for up to 0 from Apple


Current or former iPhone 6 and 7 users in Canada can now submit a settlement claim for a class-action lawsuit that could pay up to $150 to eligible users of the affected devices.

When it was announced last month that the B.C. Supreme Court approved a proposed settlement of up to $14.4 million, many of you asked when and how to file a claim.

We had access to one of the affected phones and went through the claim process (without submitting), so we can answer your questions.

How do I know if I am eligible?

You have to have been a Canadian resident as of June 15, 2023, (excluding Quebec) who owns or owned an iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, SE, 7 and/or 7 Plus device that ran iOS 10.2.1 or later prior to December 21, 2017.

There is a separate ongoing class-action lawsuit for people who live in Quebec.

In the first step of the claim process, the form will let you know if you are eligible to continue with your claim, based on your residence and device/iOS version.

How do I submit my claim?

To submit a claim, you will need to fill out and submit this form by Sept. 2.

You will need to provide your name, mailing address, phone number, email and iPhone serial number.

You can find the serial number by going to Settings > General > About.

If you don’t have your device, the barcode can be found on the phone’s original packaging, receipt or invoice.

Only one claim may be submitted per eligible iPhone.

How much I am going to get? When?

Under the agreement, you could be entitled to anywhere between $17.50 and $150, depending on how many people apply.

You can choose to receive payment in the form of an email money transfer or mailed cheque.

When we went through the claim process, the exact date of payment wasn’t stated before submitting.

Apple denies allegations of wrongdoing

According to the Canadian iPhone Power Management Class Action lawsuit website, the settlement is not an admission of liability, wrongdoing, or fault on the part of Apple.

The company denies the allegations against it.
