Apple's 1-year warranty practice found "unacceptable" in the EU
EU Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding has reportedly sent the following message to member nations:
As a matter of fact, Apple has already been fined in Italy for advertising only 1-year warranty for its iPhones, iPads and others, and selling AppleCare instead of informing users that they have legal right to free two-year warranty. Earlier in the year, the Italian government has even threatened Apple of shutting it down in the country if it did not pay its fines, so this whole thing's certainly not a joke.
If the investigation continues and finds out that Apple is continuing with its frivolous practices, we guess the company will be facing a much heavier fine this time around.
