Apple will pay ₹5000 compensation to users of iPhone 6, 7 and SE: Here’s why

Five years ago, iPhone users claimed intentional slowdowns on iPhone 6, 7, and SE models and started a dispute with the tech-giant. Apple acknowledged the slowdowns but denied any bad intentions. In 2020, Apple chose resolution and agreed to pay up to $500 million to avoid legal trouble. Some iPhone owners formed a lawsuit in 2018, contesting Apple’s actions. The affected models included iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, SE, 7, and 7 Plus.

Recent reports from Silicon Valley indicate Apple’s commencement of compensation for dissatisfied users affected by deliberate iPhone slowdowns. Legal advocate Tyson Redenbarger estimated an approximate $65 compensation per user, possibly signaling the resolution of the longstanding issue. In 2016, Apple openly admitted to slowing down older iPhones as a measure to prevent sudden shutdowns.

Initially, Apple maintained its innocence, but in 2020, the company had a change of heart, agreeing to pay a sum ranging from $310 million to $500 million. While a few claimants initially received $25, two iPhone owners held out for more and ultimately declined the initial offer.

Three years ago, a specialized website was established to allow users to submit compensation requests, necessitating the input of their iPhone’s serial number for verification. Users could select either a bank transfer or a mailed check as their preferred method of payment, highlighting the evolving landscape of remuneration methods.

For compensation, people who owned an iPhone 6, 7, or SE may wonder if they qualify. However, those who didn’t register their claims by October 6, 2020, are now ineligible for compensation. To seek compensation, users were required to register their serial numbers on a dedicated company website designed for logging performance-related grievances.
