Apple Powerbeats2 Settlement Checks in the Mail
Claimants in a $9.75 million class action lawsuit settlement over Apple’s Powerbeats2 headphones began receiving payment this week, with some qualifying for up to $189 per proof of purchase.
Customers who filed claims stated that payments from the 2017 Apple Powerbeats2 lawsuit are finally being processed.
Plaintiffs Latanya Simmons and Kevin Tobin filed the lawsuit in the Superior Court of California on behalf of a larger class of device owners, alleging that the Apple Powerbeats2 hardware contains a design defect that causes the gadget to stop retaining a charge.
Moreover, the plaintiffs claimed that the product failed to charge or turn on after a short period under regular use, particularly when exposed to moisture.

In January 2020, Apple denied the charges, and the case had been resolved after both sides agreed to a settlement.
Moreover, owners of a Powerbeats2 device who purchased it before August 7, 2020, were eligible for a claim worth up to $189 if they provided proof of purchase. The deadline to file a claim happened on November 20, 2020.
