The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) is taking Apple to the Federal Court in Melbourne over alleged misleading 4G claims with the company’s new iPad.
The iPad, which was released this month, is 4G enabled but is incompatible with any 4G networks in Australia due to the spectrum band the device supports.
According to the ACCC, Apple’s recent promotion that the iPad has Wi-Fi and 4G is misleading since it suggests consumers can use the device 4G data networks in Australia.
The consumer watchdog wants to seek “urgent interlocutory relief to ensure consumers are made aware of the correct technical capabilities of this device.
It is also seeking injunctions, penalties, corrective adverting and refunds to affected customers from Apple.
