Apple’s Subscriptions to Digital Content

November 2018: A state court judge granted final approval of a settlement agreement. According to the terms, class members with an active iTunes Account will automatically receive a credit in their iTunes account and class members without an active account will automatically receive a check. Each class member will receive a pro rata share of the $16,500,000 settlement fund after service awards, attorneys’ fees, and administration costs and expenses are paid.

(The complaint was later amended in 2016.) (Siciliano et al v. Apple, Inc., Case No. 13-cv-257676, California State Court – Santa Clara County)
