The lawsuit was first filed in December 2015. At that time, customers residing in New York State and New Jersey accused Apple of false marketing with iOS 9, namely that the performance were improved on different smartphones, including the iPhone 4S. But in fact, the update had a negative impact, according to the complainants.

As a reminder, iOS 9 had been the opportunity to have the suggestions of Siri, Slide Over, the Picture-in-Picture (PiP) function on iPad and more. On the side of the iPhone, Apple was talking “under the hood enhancements that bring you more responsive performance.” For the complainants, this particular statement was simply untrue.

Upon arrival, Apple agreed to offer the plaintiffs a total of $20 million, with an amount of $15 per person. Each Affected Person must submit a statement under penalty of perjury claiming that they downloaded iOS 9 and encountered bugs. A dedicated site for complainants will soon be launched.
