Apple’s tip and tuff over Australia’s iPad 4G misbranding seems to get some peace as the Cupertino-based company agreed to pay $2.25 million in settlement. The tech giant had agreed to settle a case brought by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) that alleged the new iPad being sold as the new iPad “with WiFi + 4G,” as it could not access local 4G networks,  reports The Australian.

Earlier over the ACCC believes that the branding of the device as “iPad Wi-Fi + 4G” in Australia resulting in misleading to consumers, the company had put the name as simply “iPad WiFi + Cellular”, instead of former “iPad WiFi + 4G”. The company did changed it in the UK, Australia, the U.S., Canada, UAE, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, New Zealand, Malaysia, Ireland, and Hong Kong.
