Apple fined $6.6 million after iPhones and iPads stopped working because they had third-party parts

Recommended Posts

An Australian court has fined Apple $9 million AUD (about $6.6 million USD) for its refusal to fix iPhones and iPads that had previously been repaired with third-party parts. Users reached out to Apple for help when their phones were bricked by “Error 53,” a software update that made phones repaired by outside parties inoperable.


Apple says it misled at least 275 Australian customers whose devices were affected by telling them they were not eligible for repairs. The company has since reached out to 5,000 affected customers, according to Australia’s Competition and Consumer Commission.

Yeah 6.6mil for them is like 5$ for us. That's even more than sad.
