Recently, the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) had accused Apple of deceiving consumers by labeling the third generation iPad (also known as iPad 3 or New iPad) as a 4G product. The Cupertino California-based company denied the claims, saying that they never marketed the device as being compatible with Australia’s 4G networks.
After offering refund to save its face over accusations of creating a misleading advertisement, Apple has started sending out emails to Australian customers of the new iPad who may have been misled about the advertised “4G” capabilities.
After facing heat in Australia for misleading advertisement, Apple is facing a new complaint over same issue, this time in Norway, Sweden and United Kingdom. Speculations of other countries doing an Australia regarding misleading advertisement of the New iPad are coming true.
