Apple could face an additional fine of $1.67 million, if it doesn't stop its ways, messing around with carriers and other retailers in regards to iPhone prices. Taiwan's FTC also said in a statement: "Through the email correspondence between Apple and these three telecom companies we discovered the companies submit their pricing plans to Apple to be approved or confirmed before the products hit the market."
