Most of the analysts all around Europe have questioned the 4G capabilities of the new iPad by Apple. Apparently the regulators are not satisfied with the Apple as it is accused of misleading the customers. I was astonished to see the Apple amid such controversies. As a matter of fact the UK does not currently have 4G capability and it is believed that the iPad would be incompatible even when it does. Reportedly the regulators have confirmed that they have received dozens of complaints regarding the issue.
Most of the complaints were resolved as a result of discussions between Apple and its regulators. Even then, I believe that the company would still be under the scanner for a considerable amount of time. The apple has decided to eliminate all the 4G related contents from its UK based website. Such an effort from the Apple is expected to resolve the matter more quickly. The Apple has claimed that it has included videos related to 4G rather than any 4G references in its recently updated websites. Literally transformed, “4G LTE” is only supported in certain networks in Canada and United States. The downfall of Apple will be a setback for the telecommunication field in Europe. The frequencies supporting the new networks are different in different European countries this adds to Apple’s misery.
To me, the Apple’s assurance of refunding the users has been a reasonable one. The company is presently trying everything within its range so as to suppress the concerns of the customers in Europe.
