A federal judge approved a $14.8 million settlement in a class action claiming Apple stored iCloud subscribers' data on third-party servers without informing them, even though the subscribers paid a premium for an iCloud subscription, according to Courthouse News.


The original class action was filed on August 12, 2019, claiming breach of contract, violations of California’s False Advertising Law, and violations of California’s Unfair Competition Law. Apple filed a motion to dismiss, which was granted in part without prejudice.


The Plaintiff’s continued their case in court and on January 13, 2022, the plaintiffs moved for preliminary approval of a settlement with Apple.  The court held a hearing and granted the motion on February 17, 2022. The plaintiffs then moved for final approval and for attorney’s fees, costs, and a service award. The court held the final fairness hearing on August 4, 2022. The parties consented to magistrate-judge jurisdiction.
