iPod battery settlement sorted

Ryan Block

It's been quite some time since the iPod battery class-action lawsuit was brought to the attention of the San Mateo County court system, but the wait is finally over. Apparently the appeals have ended, and according to the website, "the Settlement is now Final" for 1, 2, and 3G iPod users to get their due. However, none of this is going to help you much if you had a 1G or 2G iPod and haven't already submitted your claim, being that even though the claims appeal process was still raging at the time, your deadline was September 30th. Still, you have up to two years to collect your claim on a 3G iPod, which is either a replacement battery or iPod (though we wouldn't get our hopes up on the latter), or a $50 Apple store credit.
