It should come as no surprise to Apple users that the battery life on certain products isn't always the best. Last December, two Quebeckers decided to take legal action against the company and the lawsuit was recently approved by Quebec's Supreme Court.\nAccording to a report from Le Devoir, the lawsuit evokes the notion of planned obsolescence and a violation of Quebec's Consumer Protection Act.\nThe lawsuit accuses the tech giant of being dishonest with Quebecers who have purchased Apple products with a rechargeable battery since Dec. 29, 2014 (iPhones, Apple Watches, iPads, iPods and MacBooks) and Quebecers who have purchased AppleCare or AppleCare+ for their products since Dec. 20, 2015.\nPunitive damages for this lawsuit are estimated to be up to $300 per consumer. Claims for compensatory damages will be determined once the lawsuit reaches a verdict.\nThe petition for a lawsuit was filed after Apple admitted that it had slowed down the performance of some older products. iPhone 6 and 7 were also set with built-in obsolescence for battery life. One plaintiff even claimed that their iPhone 5 was completely useless after an update and was forced to buy a new phone.\nView this post on Instagram Audi R8 #audir8 #R8 #Audi #audicanada #🇩🇪 #mtlexotics #mtl #cars #speed A post shared by Montreal Exotics (@mtlexotics) on Jun 11, 2016 at 8:18pm PDT\nThe lawsuit is split into two groups, according to Le Devoir. The first group will represent all consumers who have purchased Apple products with a rechargeable battery since December 29, 2014. This category includes Apple iPhones, Apple Watch, Apple iPad, and MacBooks.\nView this post on Instagram It’s Friday! 🎉 Time to leave the office and finish your work for today.

In fact, the price compared far outweighed the benefits of the insurance package.\nIf you've purchased Apple products during the allotted time period, you may be entitled to up to $300 in compensation.\nView this post on Instagram Do you own any Apple products?
