Apple drops '4G' label from new iPad

Fondleslabs now link to 'fast mobile data networks'

Designing a Defense for Mobile Applications

Apple has stopped using the term “4G” to describe the new iPad in the UK and Australia, after regulators took it to task for doing so because the device would not work with what carriers call 4G in both nations.

In the UK the company now says the fondleslab works with “fast mobile data networks”, as you can see in the screen grab below.

The new wording on Apple's UK website for the 4G iPad

In Australia “very fast cellular networks” are now said to be supported. Again, we have snaffled a screen shot to immortalise the change.

The new wording on Apple's Australian website for the 4G iPad

The change in online wording comes after the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) took the fruity company to task in the UK, while Australia's Competition and Consumer Commission did likewise.

Apple Australia has blamed confusion around the term 4G for the mess. ®
