According to this settlement, Apple will pay a handful of states, including Ohio ($4.3 million), Indiana ($4.89 million), and the state of Kentucky a ($1.67 million).

Apple apologized for slowing down the phones and agreed to replace batteries at a discounted price. That being said, the company has never accepted that there was any wrongdoing.
