Apple Agreed To Pay $25 Million To Settle Class Action Lawsuit For Family Sharing

Apple customers could receive a payout of up to $30 as part of a class action settlement. Apple agreed to pay $25 million to settle the 2019 Walter Peters v. Apple Inc. Class Action lawsuit regarding the use of the Family Sharing feature. The Class Action lawsuit alleged that Apple falsely advertised the ability to share app subscriptions through Family Sharing, despite the majority of subscription-based apps not supporting this feature.

Family Sharing enables a customer to share subscriptions to services within the Apple ecosystem and specific third-party apps with up to five individuals. The Class Action lawsuit claims that Apple misrepresented which apps allowed subscription purchases that could be shared. Apple asserts that it did not act improperly and denies making any misleading representations, as per the settlement agreement.

The Class Action Lawsuit includes customers who were enrolled in family Sharing between June 21st, 2015, and January 30th, 2019, with one other person and purchased a third-party app. Eligible customers will receive a notice with settlement details. Customers who do not receive the email but believe they are eligible can register on the settlement website.

Customers who participate in the settlement can receive up to $30 depending on the number of people who register. The deadline to opt in is 1 March 2024.
