Apple to Pay Canadian Customers Up to $150 Following iPhone Throttling Controversy

A court in British Columbia, Canada today approved Apple's settlement related to the iPhone battery throttling controversy in 2018, according to CBC News.

Apple agreed to pay up to $14.4 million (CAD) to settle a class action lawsuit in Canada that alleged the company secretly throttled the performance of some iPhone models. Each affected customer who submits a claim will receive a payment of between $17.50 and $150 (CAD) from Apple, with the exact payout amount to be dependent on the total number of claims submitted. More information on how to submit a claim will be shared on the settlement website, but a specific timeframe has yet to be provided.

The class includes any current or former resident of Canada (excluding Quebec) who owned and/or purchased an iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and/or iPhone SE with iOS 10.2.1 or later installed or downloaded, and/or an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus with iOS 11.2 or later installed or downloaded, before December 21, 2017. A serial number will be required for each affected iPhone, according to CBC News.

Apple has denied the allegations described in the lawsuit, and the settlement does not represent an admission of fault. The settlement allows for Apple to avoid the additional time and costs involved with continued litigation.

Apple was sued in multiple Canadian provinces over iPhone battery throttling in 2018, including Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, and Saskatchewan. The cases were filed shortly after Apple revealed that it had started throttling the maximum performance of some iPhone models with "chemically aged" batteries, when necessary, to prevent the devices from unexpectedly shutting down. Apple introduced this new power management system in iOS 10.2.1, but it initially failed to mention the change in that update's release notes, leading to public outcry. Apple eventually apologized about its lack of transparency, and temporarily lowered the price of iPhone battery replacements to $29 (USD) until the end of 2018.

Apple agreed to pay up to $500 million (USD) to settle a similar class action lawsuit in the U.S., and payments started going out in January there.

Developers participating in Apple's beta program can get the new builds via the Apple Developer Center or more directly by updating their hardware already running the betas via their respective Settings apps. The public beta versions usually turn up shortly after the developer versions, and can be signed up to through the Apple Beta Software Program.

Updates can be triggered automatically or via the Settings app for most of Apple's hardware with little difficulty for users. For visionOS, users require a registered Apple developer account, though it can be a free account rather than a paid-up one.

Adobe Photoshop 25.5 - Professional image editor.

You can download Adobe Photoshop as a part of Creative Cloud for only $54.99/month

Adobe Photoshop is a recognized classic of photo-enhancing software. It offers a broad spectrum of tools that can turn your inspiration into incredible images, photos, composites, 3D artwork, paintings, and graphics on any device.

Photoshop has become the choice of thousands of creative professionals around the world. First introduced in 1988, it still is the world's leading image-editing software.

Intuitive and clean user interface

Although Photoshop for Mac is the most comprehensive graphics and image-editing software available in the market today, it has a very intuitive and easy-to-navigate interface.

With recently improved usability, this photo-editor has become even more enjoyable to use. The interface loads as soon as you decide to use Photoshop.

A user-friendly interface updates you about new features, suggests learning content, and allows you to quickly access recent files. You can easily pick up where you left or create a new project, access cloud and desktop pictures, and open an existing document.

Convenient content-aware fill workspace

Adobe has recently announced the launch of its new Content-Aware Fill workspace. It allows you to remove objects or distracting elements from your images easier than ever before.

This new option offers an interactive editing experience. Now, you can take full Control over which "good" parts of the picture to use to replace the undesired areas. It allows resizing the initial selection, rotating, scaling, and mirroring content.

Enjoy a range of new tools

The latest version of the software provides a new Frame Tool that allows you to enjoy much simpler masking. Now, you can place shapes and text into placeholder frames and fill them with pictures. To create elliptical or rectangular forms, you only need to select the Frame Tool and press "K."

There is also a new default feature of multiple undo. If you want to view an object before changes are applied, just click Control + Z (for Windows OS) and Command + Z (for macOS). Don't worry about losing any project changes in Adobe Photoshop on your MacBook Air or MacBook Pro. With a new auto-commit feature, they are saved automatically.

What's new in Photoshop

Version 21.2:
  • In the latest version, you can make accurate selections of people with one click.
  • Now, Adobe Photoshop can find and add all available fonts to your libraries automatically when you open a project.
  • In updated Photoshop, Adobe Camera Raw workspace provides all your tools right where you need them so that you can work on your project more efficiently.
  • You can experience higher accuracy with the enhanced Match Font feature that allows vertical text, provides multiple-line detection and offers even more typefaces.
  • Now, you can change the orientation and add a rotation to any pattern in Pattern Overlays and Pattern Fill layers much more easily than before.

  • Create and save your presets for future use or import and export to share inspiration.
  • You can now adjust text alignment, spacing (leading and kerning), and font style (bolding, italicizing, underlining) directly from the Contextual Task Bar.

  • 8 GB RAM (16 GB recommended)
  • 4 GB of available hard-disk space for installation; additional free space required during installation (cannot install on a volume that uses a case-sensitive file system or on removable flash storage devices)
  • Internet connection
