Canadians Get $45 Credit For Older iPods

May 8th, 2008 | By | Category: iPods & Portable Media Players

Following two class-action lawsuits, Apple Canada is offering $45 credits to Canadian residents who purchased first-, second- or third-generation iPods before June 24, 2004.

The proposed settlement is the result of two iPod owners suing because rechargeable batteries in the second year of use conked out after just three hours, contrary to the advertised claim of eight hours between recharges.

Apple agreed to a settlement covering both claims. As many as 80,000 Canadians could be eligible, including 11,310 Quebecers, said Montreal lawyer Philippe Trudel, who represented Lenzi.
