Italian Fine for Apple for Misleading Consumers
Tech company Apple has been fined 10 million euros in Italy for misleading consumers. According to the competition watchdog, the iPhone maker also did not comply with the warranty rules.
Both cases have to do with the water-resistance of iPhones.
Apple advertised with this without making it clear that the devices could only withstand water under certain conditions.
In addition, Apple had stated in its warranty policy that liquid damage was not covered and refused to repair phones with such damage free of charge.
The fine won’t make much of an impression on Apple. In the last quarter where the American company released figures, it posted a profit of $ 57.4 billion.
