Cupertino-based giant Apple Has been fined $ 2 million for not including the Chargers with iPhone 12 A report by a Brazilian consumer protection agency said in the series, 9to5Mac. Procon-SP, Brazil’s consumer protection regulator, has fined Apple for “misleading advertisements, selling a device without a charger, and inappropriate terms”. Last year, the same agency questioned Apple that the iPhone manufacturer had not shown an environmental benefit to it except the charging brick inside the box. Procon said that Apple did not respond to its query when the iPhone 12 price dropped after removing the charger, what the price of the iPhone is with and without the charger, and if the company had reduced the number of chargers produced.
The Proper SP, in addition to removing the charger, has pointed to other issues with the Cupertino-based giant, including misleading advertisements, where iPhone 11 Pro customers reported that Apple did not repair their phones after problems with water. In addition, Procon SP stated that some users reported problems with certain functions on their iPhones after updating them, which Apple did not help. Finally, the regulator has an issue with Apple to exempt itself from all legal and implied guarantees and against hidden or obvious defects, the 9to5Mac report said. The report quoted Procon-SP executive director Fernando Capez as saying, “Apple needs to understand that Brazil has solid consumer protection laws and institutions.” For this, we need to respect these laws and these institutions. “
Apple has not yet responded to the Procon-SP inquiry, but the company has the option to appeal in court. The iPhone 12 series starts at a price of $ 1,200 iPhone 12 mini, Against the $ 729 price tag in the US.
