The Australian reports that Apple has agreed to a $2.25 million settlement in Australian courts over the advertising of the third-generation iPad as “4G” in Australia.

The source of the issue is that a true 4G LTE network is not supported by the third-generation iPad in Australia. Apple has already taken a big step to settle the 4G iPad confusion: the company has renamed the “iPad WiFi + 4G” to “iPad WiFi + Cellular.”

The lawsuit is to be settled with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, the group that accused Apple of the false advertising. However, the judge presiding over the case is yet to provide the final approval for the settlement.
