After Apple launched the iPhone 4 back in 2010 it did not take long for users to complain over the antenna issues, Apple responded to this by offering all users a free Apple iPhone 4 bumper. 2 year later on Apple have only started offering financial compensation, Apple have started offering $15 compensation to users, unfortunately this is only happening in America at the moment. Out of all of the American owners of the iPhone 4 approximately 25 million customers are eligible for the $15 settlement. Apple have said:
“Apple will provide a $15 cash payment to Class Members who send in a valid claim form. The claim form will require you to declare that you: (a) experienced antenna or reception issues with your iPhone 4; (b) were unable to return your iPhone 4 without incurring any costs; (c) were unwilling to use a case or free bumper for your iPhone 4; and (d) completed certain troubleshooting steps or are unable to complete the troubleshooting steps because you no longer own your iPhone 4.”
