Apple got charged with a fine of $2 million by Brazilian consumer watchdog. And the reason being that the iPhone 12 series did not include a charger. Apple is accused of misleading the customers with advertisements and selling the device without charger on unfair terms.
Apple announced beforehand that the iPhone 12 series won’t come up with a charger or earbuds in their boxes, due to environmental concerns which would help to reduce 2 million metric tonnes of carbon, which is equal to removing 450,000 cars in one year.
Procon-SP also cited iOS update problems,” and “unfair terms” as other issues as “Apple exempts itself from all legal and implicit guarantees and against hidden or not apparent defects”.
“Apple needs to understand that in Brazil there are solid consumer protection laws and institutions. It needs to respect these laws and these institutions,” Procon-SP Executive Director Fernando Capiz added. And Apple is yet to comment on Procon-SP charges.
