The Commerce Commission is carefully watching legal action its equivalent in Australia is taking over the new Apple iPad.
The commission has received one complaint about advertising of the new device.
It comes as the computer giant offers to refund Australian customers who believe they have been misled by claims the latest iPad is capable of connecting to the country's upgraded 4G network.
Australia's competition watchdog has launched legal action against the company for false and misleading advertising.
Apple's lawyers argue the new device works with other Australian networks that by international standards are 4G.
The commission said the complaint was received recently and is still being assessed.
