iPod Class Action Suit Settlement

Several readers note a Class Action settlement for consumers who purchased earlier versions of the iPod. They can get a $50 voucher and extended service warranties under a tentative settlement.

According to the terms of the settlement, people who fill out a claim form are entitled to receive $50 redeemable toward the purchase of any Apple products or services except iTunes downloads or iTunes gift certificates. They can redeem the voucher within 18 months of final settlement approval at any bricks-and-mortar Apple Store or online.


The settlement appears to cover owners of 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation iPods purchased through May 2004. The original suit was filed in the Fall of 2003 by eight consumers dissatisfied with the iPods battery life and performance.
