Apple has ditched the 'Wi-Fi and 4G' label from it's data-enabled new iPad model (as reported by 9to5mac) and has rechristened it as the 'Wi-Fi and cellular' version, as a response to complaints from countries including the UK and Australia directed at the misleading '4G' in the new iPad model's name.
Although the new iPad is 4G-LTE capable, it won't be able to make use of the speeds offered by 4G in certain countries including Australia, due to a lack of compatible 4G infrastructure. The only carriers that currently support Apple’s 4G radios are in the US and Canada.
Other countries where Apple dropped references to 4G over the weekend include New Zealand, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, the United Arab Emirates, Britain and Ireland. Apple, however, continues to use 4G for the latest iPad in, among others, France, Germany, Denmark and Sweden.
Apple has already offered Australian customers refunds over the naming confusion, so here's to hoping this new label will avoid any further purchasing mishaps from 4G-hopeful consumers.
