Apple issuing iPhone 4 'antennagate' settlement checks, owners start to receive $15 checks

Checks in the 'antennagate' scandal start to be issued

Apple's "antennagate" scandal has almost come to a close. Owners of iPhone 4 devices have started to receive their $15 check from Apple, their portion of the settlement fund. The checks are being issued to those owners who did not receive a free bumper for the defective iPhone 4.

The check must be cashed before the date listed, which appears to be 90 days out from the date of issue. For those who didn't submit a claim, you appear to be out of luck. If you miss cashing the check in time, you're also out of luck as Apple will not reissue the check.

 

The settlement was a total of $53 million, though lawyers got their hands on $16 million of it. The settlement found that Apple misrepresented and concealed material information about the iPhone 4, particularly the antenna and reception quality.
