Several people in the United States filed a lawsuit against Apple, alleging that the battery life on the Powerbeats Pro headphones has decreased

A class-action lawsuit will sue Apple, claiming that the battery in the Powerbeats Pro does not have the officially mentioned nine hours. The lawsuit, filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, alleges Apple overpromises battery life for the Beats by Dre Powerbeats Pro. While Apple says it can last up to nine hours on a single charge, New York resident Alejandro Vivar says that's not the case.

Part of the problem, the lawsuit says, is that the earphones don't necessarily charge properly, blaming a poorly designed charging case. Allegedly, the earphones do not fit into the earphone case accurately, preventing them from charging.

The lawsuit also cites the "IPX4-rated sweat and water resistance" claim as another cause for concern. Sweat can corrode the charging contacts, Vivar said, adding that sweat damage may not be covered under the product warranty.

By failing to disclose the problems with the Powerbeats Pro, the lawsuit accuses Apple of making more profits "at the expense of consumers. "

The lawsuit seeks to represent buyers in multiple states, including New York, Georgia, Michigan, Montana, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Dakota and Virginia.

This isn't the first time Apple has been sued over the performance of Powerbeats. Previously, consumers complained about malfunctions with the Powerbeats 2 and Powerbeats 3, which were eventually voluntarily dismissed in 2020.
