After Apple resolves a class-action lawsuit for $14.8 million, some iCloud users will be compensated.

Suppose you paid for extra storage on your iCloud account. In that case, you might be eligible for a refund after Apple agreed to pay $14.8 million to resolve a class-action lawsuit alleging that it violated its terms and conditions by keeping iCloud customer data on third-party servers.The settlement, according to Macworld, covers anyone who paid for an iCloud subscription between September 16, 2015, and January 31, 2016, and had a US mailing address linked with their account. Users should receive a notification telling them that they are a member of the class-action suit if the email address used to sign up for iCloud storage during that time is still active.The amount of money each person receives depends on how long they were subscribed for during those four months and which subscription tier they were on. Apple’s monthly iCloud pricing were $0.99 for 50GB, $3.99 for 200GB, and $9.99 for 500GB at the time (1TB).Despite the settlement, Apple insists that it has done nothing wrong and did not violate its iCloud Terms and Conditions. On August 4, a Final Approval Hearing will be placed.If you think you could be qualified, go to the Williams v. Apple Inc. lawsuit website to learn more about the case, including how much money you could get back.Of course, Apple is no new to class-action lawsuits. The most recent lawsuit against the business said that M1 MacBook screens were cracked. It also faced class actions over faulty Apple Watch screens, the App Store, and several relating to the butterfly keyboards, to name a few. It also met an iPhone throttling case for which it paid $500 million and class actions over faulty Apple Watch screens, the App Store, and several relating to the butterfly keyboards, to name a few. However, with a market capitalization of $2.84 trillion, the world’s largest corporation has little to fear in these situations.
