iPhone 12 didn’t surprise users for its features but also for the controversial charging adapter removal. The removal of the charger adapter from iPhone 12’s box has disappointed a wide range of users across the globe. If you were among the ones then this news will make you happy and bring a smile to your face. Apple was fined by the authorities of Brazil for ditching the charging adapter from their newer iPhones from the box.
Early this year Apple was fined USD 2 million as penalty, but that seems to be not enough for the authorities of Brazil. After losing the lawsuit to Mariana Morales Oliveira, from Santos (Sao Paulo), Brazil, the company seems to deliver a free charging adapter to the iPhone 12 user.
Apple to Include Charger Adapter in Brazil
According to the reports, the final verdict of the case was concluded on May 23rd, 2021, where Mariana gained a win. Mariana’s lawyer claimed that the case is called “tied sale.” He proclaimed that the company has removed the charger from the retail box. This forced users to buy an extra accessory which also comes in a retail box that doesn’t support Apple’s environmentally friendly agenda.
THE ISSUE OF PROTECTING THE WORLD THAT APPLE CLAIMS, CLAIMED AT LAUNCH, DISCLOSED IN THE PRESS AND ALSO CLAIMED IN THE PROCESS THAT IT IS A CONCERN FOR THE ENVIRONMENT. WHAT WE SAID AND THE JUDGE AGREED, IS THAT THIS PROTECTION TO THE ENVIRONMENT THAT APPLE SAYS IT HAS IS SELECTIVE PROTECTION. IT IS RELATIVE PROTECTION BECAUSE THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT STOPPED SELLING THE ACCESSORY. IT HAS NOT STOPPED MANUFACTURING THE CHARGER. SO FAR THE ONLY THING IS THAT IT DOESN’T COME WITH THE DEVICE. HOWEVER, YOU CAN STILL BUY IT SEPARATELY. IT’S KIND OF POINTLESS. ONLY THE CHARGER THAT COMES WITH THE SMARTPHONE POLLUTES THE ENVIRONMENT? THE SEPARATE CHARGER DOESN’T?
The lawsuit is over now and the company has to obey the orders and deliver a free charger to Mariana within 10 days. In case Apple fails to deliver the charging adapter then it has to pay a daily fine of 200 Brazilian Real and it can go up to 5,000.
