Apple may provide users of the iPhone 6, 7, and iPhone SE up to $65 in compensation for the device slowdown. Before October 6, 2020, users who did not register complaints were no longer eligible for reimbursement.

After reportedly slowing down the performance of some iPhone customers, Apple will now start to provide compensation. iPhone customers got into a spat with tech giant Apple five years ago, claiming that their iPhone 6, iPhone 7, and iPhone SE were being purposefully slowed down. 

Unexpectedly, Apple decided to settle the case in 2020 and agreed to a significant payment of up to $500 million to avoid a potentially costly legal battle, according to Reuters. The Cupertino-based company held its stance despite the charges flying. Although they admitted that the technology needs to be slowed down, they argued that no malice was intended.

A Silicon Valley story claims that a recent ruling has permitted Apple to begin compensating customers who were dissatisfied with their iPhones’ allegedly poor performance. 

According to Tyson Redenbarger, the attorney who represents these iPhone users, each one might collect around $65, or about Rs 5000 in Indian rupees. This may mean, as mentioned on, that the issue is finally coming to an end.

Apple said that they intentionally made older iPhones sluggish in 2016. But they said that they didn’t do so out of malice but rather to stop the phones from abruptly going off. The Verge reported on this. It seemed like Apple was explaining why they did it in a fantastic speaker’s voice.

But not everyone was convinced by this justification. In 2018, a group of disgruntled iPhone owners banded together to file a class-action lawsuit against the powerful tech giant. A digitized roll call of the affected iPhones was available:

There was a significant legal dispute involving Apple. At first, they insisted that they had done nothing wrong, but by 2020, they had changed their tune and desired to make amends. They consented to pay a sum of money ranging from $310 million to $500 million.

The complainers may have first received $25 apiece. However, two iPhone users rejected the initial offer because they wanted more. They were informed last week that they wouldn’t get any more payments, so Apple may now begin compensating the disgruntled iPhone consumers.
