Apple to pay $40 to certain Apple iPad buyers to settle Class Action suit
Following the elimination of unlimited data for iPad owners, AT&T customers with the iPad were limited to 2GB of data, a figure that has now risen to 5GB. Meanwhile, as long as they continue to make payments on time, long time AT&T customers remain grandfathered with unlimited data.
Besides the $40 check they will receive from Apple, Class Members will get a $20 discount on a tiered 5GB data plan from AT&T bringing the price down to $30 a month.No matter what price AT&T changes the 5GB rate to, the members of the Class Action will always receive $20 off.
The settlement helps Apple avoid court costs and also does not constitute an admission of guilt by either party.
