The new iPad is undeniably Apple's bread and butter for the last three months in terms of incoming revenues for the company. The intense media coverage and Apple's own advertisements made the new iPad an international tablet sensation once again. But wait because not everything is going sweet for the new iPad in the last few days.

According to a report, Apple changes its 4G branding on the new iPad because of some complaints received by the company in some countries around the world.

Apparently, Apple's advertisement of the new iPad regarding its 4G LTE connectivity is being questioned and ridiculed by some mobile communication regulators in other countries like Hong Kong, Ireland, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Australia, UAE and the UK.

What exactly is the new iPad advertisement that caught the attention of these international regulators? It is the ad that says "Built with the latest in wireless technology, the new iPad lets you connect to fast data networks around the world - up to 4G LTE".

The point of argument here is that these regulators in the countries mentioned above alleges that Apple markets the new iPad LTE is not quite right since the radio Apple uses for LTE compatibility is only compatible with LTE frequencies in the United States and Canada.

After these complaints from other countries had surfaced, Apple for its part is now making changes on their ad iPad WiFi + 4G to iPad WiFi + Cellular in a bold attempt to avoid possible lawsuits from the countries concerned.
