Apple fined $2m over wrong iPad claims

Apple has been fined more than $2 million for misleading consumers that its latest iPad was compatible with the next generation 4G broadband network.

Apple misled the public with claims in its advertising implying that the "iPad with WiFi + 4G", could connect directly to the Telstra LTE mobile data network in Australia, which it could not, Federal Court Justice Mordy Bromberg found.

In a judgment delivered this morning, he said the company had engaged in conduct liable to mislead the public and contravened Australian consumer law.

Justice Bromberg fined Apple $2.25 million and ordered it pay $300,000 in costs.
