Apple to pay a $2.25 million fine to the ACCC for iPad claims

Apple Australia has agreed to pay a $2.25 million fine to the Australian Consumer and Competition Commission for misleading consumers with its iPad 4G advertising.

The Australian reports that Apple is also set to pay $300,000 to cover the ACCC’s court costs.

When Apple initially released the new iPad in Australia last March it advertised that it iPad was 4G capable, when the device is only compatible with the 700 MHz and 2100 MHz 4G frequencies, not Telstra’s 4G frequency of 1800MHz.
