Default Apple to settle suit over "water damaged" phones

I wonder what, if anything, this means for Android users who have had warranty repairs denied due to the moisture indicator showing water...

Link to article

From the article:

The customers covered in the class are those who were denied warranty repairs or replacements on certain iOS devices because of Apple's liquid damage policy; if a white liquid contact indicator (LCI) tape near the headphone jack or dock connector had turned pink or red due to moisture, Apple would refuse service. But, as noted by Wired, the maker of the tape (3M) has stated that the indicator can be triggered by humidity, not necessarily water itself, meaning the tape could potentially turn pink without contact with the liquid form of H20.

Relevant part is 3M's statement. Emphasis is mine.
