Here’s How To Claim Your Share Of The $500 Million Apple Paid For Slowing Down Old iPhones

Toward the end of 2017, there was a spike in complaints from iPhone users who noticed their device was running significantly slower than it had in the past. There was plenty of speculation that Apple had a hand in this decline, which seemed like a conspiracy theory until a high school student discovered the company had released an iOS update that purposefully throttled phones with batteries that had degraded to a certain point.

The Silicon Valley behemoth issued a rare apology after admitting it was at fault and offered to replace the batteries of the impacted phones for $29. If you took them up on that offer, you can now (theoretically) get 25 of those dollars back courtesy of the $500 million it paid to settle a class action lawsuit back in March.

As a result of the agreement, anyone who purchased an iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, or SE and felt the impact of the update before December 21, 2017 can now make their way to the succinctly named and attempt to get a piece of the pie—although you may not want to get your hopes up.

Jon Hamm Is Bringing Back ‘Fletch’ With A Reboot Of The Chevy Chase Classic

Jon Hamm will star in and produce a new feature film about the brazen investigative reporter to be directed by Superbad‘s Greg Mottola and hail from Miramax. The movie, like the Chevy Chase films in the 1980s, is based on Gregory Mcdonald’s 1970s and 1980s Fletch mystery novels.

The new film adaptation will specifically be based on the second book in the Mcdonald series, Confess, Fletch. In a mysterious chain of wild events, Fletch finds himself in the middle of multiple murders — one of which pins him as a prime suspect. While on a quest to prove his innocence, Fletch is tasked with finding his fiancée’s stolen art collection, the only inheritance she’s acquired after her father goes missing and is presumed dead.
