Apple is facing trouble everywhere for highlighting its products and showing their quality and performance more than actually what they could deliver. Now Apple is being sued by the Australian government’s Competition and Consumer Commission for making misleading claims about new iPad offering 4G, because their device is not compatible with the 4G networks operating in Australia.
Apple’s new iPad received much hype before its release and after its launch in the market earlier this month, it had been sold really quickly as is often the case with anything new with Apple. Within its first week of release, more than three million units were sold in ten countries, including the U.S. and Australia. But since then, the picture has not been good about the new iPad. Customers have started complaining about getting heated up quickly and charging very slow.
The problem that the Australian government has with Apple’s labeling is that it does not specify the 4G networks the device would work on. Hence, Australian government wants Apple to correct the labeling before it takes serious action in court against this misleading act. Also, before this product arrives here in Pakistan, a company selling Apple’s product should make sure that it runs along with the networks here.
Day by day, Apple’s products are losing their pristine appeal of being so reliable as Apple is facing lawsuits not just for patents, but also in terms of the environment, labour laws and now product quality and misleading advertisements. Somebody needs to run Apple right.
