How Much Is Apple Paying In Fines This Time?

According to sources, tech giant Apple is being fined €10 million EUR, which is roughly $12 million USD for false claims of how waterproof their iPhones really are via the Italian competition regulator Autorità Garante della Concorrenza e del Mercato (AGCM). The fine, which was just announced today, comes in following Apple paying a $113 million USD fine over its “batterygate” state-side investigation.

 

It was stated by the AGCM that the tech giant misinformed consumers in 2 different ways: 1st, based on the site and promotional materials, Apple makes the claim that the iPhones 8-11 models are waterproof between depths of 1 and 4 meters for a duration of a half an hour. The AGCM claims that this research was conducted under laboratory conditions, utilizing still, pure water and would not be maintained under real-life conditions. 2nd, the warranty terms put forth by Apple voided water-damage coverage and refuses to repair phones suffering from water damage.
