A class-action lawsuit filed in 2019 over Apple’s Family Sharing feature was settled this week for $25 million. The suit alleged that Apple misrepresented being able to use the feature to share subscriptions to apps, and further, ran an advertisement promoting Family Sharing support in apps that did not actually support the feature. In the settlement, Apple will pay up to $30 per person who subscribed to a third-party app that used Family Sharing between June 21, 2015, and January 30, 2019. If you fit the criteria, you can file a payment election claim on a dedicated site. The news link on Computer Talk Radio will take you there.
