Startup Pakistan: Apple‘s decision to not include a charger in the iPhone 12 was seen as a bold step in some quarters, and the move even drew the attention of other manufacturers to tinker with the traditional accessories known to come with phones from headsets chargers.
But a recent decision by the Consumer Protection Agency of the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo to fine Apple for leaving out the phone charger from the iPhone 12 box may have brought the issue to the front burner again, at least in Brazil for now.
It is reported that the consumer watchdog in the state of Sao Paulo had fined Apple the equivalent of about $2 million for omitting the phone charger from the iPhone 12 series.
The state consumer regulator says Apple’s action was a violation of Brazil’s Consumer Defense Code.
It is also probable that there have been complaints and petitions by aggrieved buyers since the iPhones began selling in the country.
