Deceptive Warranty Claim Might Lead Apple to Potential Blacklist in Belgium Apple is facing a serious trouble in Belgium due to the misleading warranty claims

Apple’s huge business might see a massive downfall in Belgium, as the authority is considering banning its website in the country

Apple is going to face a big trouble in Belgium, as a Brussels magistrate is reportedly thinking to put the company’s website in the blacklist as a result of deceiving the customers with confusing warranty information.

According to DMorgan, the Federal Public Service (FPS) Economy has a conversation with the judge about potential action regarding the issue. The judge is reportedly considering about banning Apple’s website. Nonetheless, the final decision hasn’t been taken yet.

According to ZDNet, the EU has imposed a law of proving two-year warranty for technology devices. But, Apple usually provides one-year warranty service. However, the customers willing to enjoy warranty for an extended period are required to go for AppleCare plans.

Nonetheless, in 2013, Apple brought a change in its plan, enabling the EU consumers to be entitled with a two-year warranty service, which fails to convince the authority of Belgium.

If Apple really faces the “blacklist” penalty, its business will be definitely affected quite seriously. Moreover, the consumers will be disabled to use iTunes and the app store.
