iphone Vs Brazil

According to Brazil, Apple cannot continue to sell iPhones that do not have a charger.

In 2020, Apple removed the charger and earbuds from the packaging.

The Brazilian government is upset with Apple’s decision to cease including chargers with the release of the iPhone 12 and has retaliated by suspending local sales of iPhones that do not come with chargers. In addition to suspending some iPhone sales, Brazil’s Ministry of Justice and Public Security ordered Apple to pay a R$12,275,500 (about $2.3 million USD) fine and terminated the iPhone 12’s registration with Anatel, Brazil’s telecommunications body akin to the FCC.

The Brazilian government is upset with Apple’s decision to cease including chargers with the release of the iPhone 12 and has retaliated by suspending local sales of iPhones that do not come with chargers. In addition to suspending some iPhone sales, Brazil’s Ministry of Justice and Public Security ordered Apple to pay a R$12,275,500 (about $2.3 million USD) fine and terminated the iPhone 12’s registration with Anatel, Brazil’s telecommunications body akin to the FCC.

Senacon, Brazil’s consumer protection agency, claims that Apple’s decision to discontinue the charger places a “strain” on customers and that Apple might find alternative ways to lessen its environmental effect, such as converting to USB-C. It goes on to say that the lack of a charging brick renders the gadget “incomplete,” forcing buyers to make an additional purchase in addition to the iPhone itself. Last year, the country fined Apple $2 million for failing to include chargers with its iPhone 12 handsets, claiming that the business “has taken no effort to mitigate the damage and continues to sell cell phones without chargers.”

THE IPHONE 14 LAUNCH EVENT IS TOMORROW

Apple first revealed plans to remove the charging brick and earphones from its iPhones in 2020, instead including only a USB-C to Lightning cable, citing environmental concerns. The absence of the two accessories, according to the business, would lessen the iPhone’s environmental effect by allowing for smaller packaging, which would offset carbon emissions. However, other experts believe that this change is more beneficial to Apple’s bottom line than to the environment. The iPhone 12 was notable for being the first device to include 5G connectivity — and Apple may have been looking for additional ways to cut costs to offset the costlier new radio frequency components required to allow the connectivity.

This isn’t the first time Apple has faced backlash in other countries for discontinuing the inclusion of headphones and charging cables with new iPhones. Previously, a French law forced Apple to include earphones with all handsets introduced in the country, but the government passed a regulation earlier this year that no longer forces mobile businesses to provide earbuds with their phones. The European Union as a whole is pursuing Apple’s usage of a proprietary charger and is enacting a new rule that will mandate phone manufacturers to utilize USB-C connections by 2024. Brazil is also considering a similar reform that would require USB-C charges.
