Apple wants to sell iPhone without a charger, but it’s difficult
This is another headache that Apple faces in Brazil. It all started in 2020, when the brand released the iPhone 12 without the charger in the box. At the time, the manufacturer even justified that the decision would reduce electronic waste in the world. The problem is that consumers and authorities were not very fond of this idea.
No wonder, Senacon, from the Ministry of Justice and Public Security, ran after Apple to understand the reasons for this decision. And even with all the explanations, at the beginning of September, the secretariat decided to ban the sale of cell phones in Brazil. The company was also fined R$12 million when accused of tying.
The story, however, does not stop there. In mid-October, the São Paulo court fined Apple R$100 million and even demanded delivery of the charger for free. Procon also fined stores in Minas Gerais for selling the Apple cell phone without the plug adapter in the box.
