Settlement of 'Antennagate' Lawsuit Gives iPhone 4 Buyers $15 or a Free Bumper

A settlement has finally been reached in the class action lawsuit against Apple and the iPhone 4 antenna, reports CNET.

The preliminary approval announced Friday afternoon will give all US residents who bought the iPhone 4 a free bumper or a $15 check provided by Apple.

The settlement comes from 18 separate lawsuits that were consolidated into one. All share the claim that Apple was "misrepresenting and concealing material information in the marketing, advertising, sale, and servicing of its iPhone 4--particularly as it relates to the quality of the mobile phone antenna and reception and related software."

Apple is forced to send emails to all US buyers by April 30, 2012 notifying them of the settlement. The site,, will go live in the coming weeks with instructions on the settlement and how to make a claim.

Antennagate started when the iPhone 4 was released and users noticed poor reception when gripping the antenna. It quickly turned into a PR nightmare for Apple. Eventually, Apple held a press conference dismissing any problems with the antenna, but did give a free case to early iPhone 4 buyers.
