Brazil government has frown at and said it is banning the sale of iPhones which do not include USB power adapter.
This was contained in a statement issued last Tuesday, Brazil’s Ministry of Justice and Public Security said it has fined Apple 12.275 million reais (£2.04m).
According to source, Apple will appeal against the ban.
The company told Reuters in a statement it would work with Brazilian authorities to “resolve their concerns,” but added it has previously won several court rulings in Brazil on the issue.
“We are confident that our customers are aware of the various options for charging and connecting their devices,” Apple said.
The fine and ban on sales of iPhones without USB power adapters was announced a day before Apple showcased its new iPhone 14, 14 Pro and Apple Watch Ultra.
It would be recalled that São Paulo’s consumer protection agency fined Apple £2m last year, saying the sale of iPhone 12 and every model since then, violates consumer law because they don’t come with chargers.
