The tech giant Apple The Power Adapter has been made a must-add with the best-selling iPhone models Sೊo Paolo, Brazil, according to an AppleInsider report. According to the report, state consumer protection agency Procon-SP has urged consumers to pair phone chargers with iPhone 12s if customers request.
After France, Sao Paolo seems to be the only place to go to include an Apple charger with the iPhone 12 purchase.
Procon-SP, in a press release, said charging brick was an “essential part” of using the iPhone or its other product. Apple has violated the Brazilian Consumer Protection Code by not providing a charger with the new iPhones.
According to the report, Procon-SP is not satisfied with Apple’s reason for not charging with new iPhones. Because most Apple customers already have iPhone chargers, not giving them additional chargers will help cut carbon emissions, not sit well with the agency. It argues that the American tech giant has not made clear in its marketing why it is stopping power adapters with new iPhones.
A similar case was developed in France, where Apple was made to add earpods with iPhone models. The company announced in October that it would pair earpods and power adapters with its iPhones, saying the decision would help the environment by reducing carbon emissions.
