You know how your iPhone slows down after a few years?  Back in 2017, Apple admitted that was on purpose but they swore it was to try to improve battery life, not just to push you to upgrade.


Well they got sued.  And they wound up settling the class-action lawsuit for $500 million.  That works out to roughly $25 for every iPhone they throttled.



So you should go through your records to see if you or your family members owned any of these before December of 2017 and upgraded the iOs when you owned them:  iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6S Plus, or SE . . . or iPhone 7 or 7 Plus.



As long as you have the serial number of the phone, you can go to SmartPhonePerformanceSettlement.com and claim your piece of the payout.
