Apple will soon make another payout over the iPhone “Batterygate” uproar. As the Washington Post (via The Verge) reports, Apple has agreed to a settlement that will see it pay 34 states a total of $113 million over its decision to quietly throttle the processor in the iPhone 6S and other models to prevent unexpected battery-related shutdowns.
The Batterygate deal follows an Apple settlement worth up to $500 million from earlier in 2020. The agreement doesn’t require that Apple admits any wrongdoing, but the Arizona Attorney General’s office said the company would have to offer “truthful” iPhone battery health, performance, and power management info.
