Apple likely to be forced to return the charger with the iPhone 13, at least in Brazil

Published

The iPhone 13 hasn’t even gone on sale in Brazil yet, but the country’s local consumer protection regulator has already said it’s going to investigate Apple’s decision to sell the iPhone charger separately.

This isn’t the first time a regulator has chased Apple for a decision to sell an iPhone charger separately. Earlier this year, Brazilian consumer protection regulator based in São Paulo state fined Apple $ 2 million “for misleading advertising, selling a device without a charger, and unfair terms.” And last December, Apple was forced to return the chargers to the iPhone 12 boxes in Brazil.

Procon-SP, the state consumer protection agency for the state of São Paulo, said it was illegal to sell the phone and charger separately because “the customer is required to buy two products.” The regulator also argues that companies must inform customers in detail about changes to their products, in this case the lack of a charger: “If the information is hidden, it is also a violation of the law.”

Procon-SP is investigating a class action lawsuit to help any buyer who thinks Apple should provide them with a charger for free. Given the way the local authorities made decisions in previous cases, there is no doubt that everything will follow the same scenario with the iPhone 13.

Less than a month is left before the release of the iPhone 14 series, while insiders leaked the design of the smartphone a long time ago, and the exact drawings that fell into the hands of accessory manufacturers made it possible to create three-dimensional models of new devices.
