Apple fined in Australia for misleading customers


(MENAFN) An Australian court has fined Apple USD6.5 million for refusing to fix iPhones and iPads that had been serviced by third parties.

The nation's consumer watchdog took the tech giant to court last year, after complaints from users about faulty devices.

The company admitted that it misled 275 people about their rights to remedies such as repairs and replacements.

According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, the iPhones and iPads were inoperable, after users downloaded a software update, and when they sought repairs, Apple denied some of them assistance because their devices had previously been fixed by a third party.
