Consumers could cash in from Apple lawsuit

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now/AP) -

If you use Apple products, you could cash in on a class action lawsuit settlement by the company.

Apple has agreed to pay $53 million to settle a suit accusing it of failing to repair faulty iPhones and iPods under warranty.

The company refused to pay when indicator tape on the products turned red, indicating exposure to water.

But 3M, which makes the tape, says it's sensitive and could be activated by humidity.

Hundreds of thousands of affected consumers could get cash from the deal.
