According to a recent report Apple could possibly face a fine for unfair practices in Korea. The country’s Fair Trade Commission may impose a fine against Apple relating to how it deals with the mobile carriers in the country and its iPhone.
Apple started selling its iPhones in Korea back in 2009, Apple is apparently imposing conditions on the mobile carriers who sell its iPhones.
According to the report, Apple apparently makes the carriers follow Apple’s guidelines for adverts, but does not share the costs for these adverts.
Apple also apparently makes the mobile carriers pay for repair costs on handsets and also pay for display stand installation costs. It is not clear as yet on how much of a potential fine could be levied against Apple.
