Apple Inc. has agreed to settle two class-action lawsuits in Canada, which alleged the company has misled customers about the staying power of the iPods, according to reports that have circulated last week.

iPod owners Ines Lenzi and Bradley Waddell, lead plaintiffs in the lawsuits, claimed Apple misrepresented iPod's battery life by claiming they were capable of eight to 10 hours of continual music playback. However, after recharging, the iPods' battery life began declining.

According to the Associated Press, there exists a court document that the Cupertino-based company is offering credits for its online store of about Rs.1,804.49 ($44.75) to those who reside in Canada and purchased certain iPods in the country on or before June 24, 2004. To be eligible, the battery life of their iPods, while continuously playing music, needs to have dropped to five hours or less for the first and second generation of the devices and four hours or less for the third generation.
