ACCC sues Apple over iPad 4G claims
Apple is in yet another legal battle, this time with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, who is calling out the tech giant over its potentially misleading claims of 4G capabilities on the new iPad
Apple is in yet another legal battle, this time with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, who is calling out the tech giant over its potentially misleading claims of 4G capabilities on the new iPad.
The third generation iPad comes with the ability to connect to 4G or long-term evolution networks in the 700MHz or 2100MHz spectrum band. Australia's only 4G network at the moment is provided by Telstra, which uses it's former 2G spectrum band of 1800MHz.
The problem came up when Apple started promoting the "Wi-Fi + 4G" feature on the iPad, giving consumers the impression that if they have the latest iPad, they can connect to a 4G mobile data network as long as they have a SIM card.
Some retailers are already informing consumers of the limitations of the new iPad, and the ACCC is urging iPad buyers to make themselves aware of the device's limitations in Australia.
