Apple may be forced to return the charger to the iPhone. At least in Brazil

Published

Perhaps Brazil will end up forcing Apple to include a charger with every Phone sold in the country again. Activists say the charger is an “essential part” of a smartphone.

According to the latest news, Apple must pay compensation to a Brazilian buyer who recently bought an iPhone for selling the device without a charger in the box, which violates consumer protection law. This decision was taken by the Brazilian court.

Apple’s decision to remove the charger from the box caused controversy in 2020. Apple claims the move is driven by environmental concerns, arguing that the decision is the equivalent of removing almost 450,000 cars a year from the road.

Nevertheless, this step caused a public and legal outcry. In the latter case, a judge in Brazil, a country that has long questioned Apple’s motives for removing the accessory, is forcing Apple to compensate the buyer for almost $1,075 for missing the charger.

According to Article 39 of the Consumer Code (CDC), this strategy is an offensive and illegal practice in Brazil, so selling a mobile phone and charger separately is prohibited. Thus, Apple is sentenced after selling the iPhone and charger separately to a consumer in the city of Goiania.

Last year, Brazil fined Apple $2 million as punishment for violating consumer protection laws and disrespecting Brazilian customers, according to Fernando Capez, head of consumer group Procon-SP.

According to the consumer protection agency, Apple violated the Brazilian Consumer Code. Apple responded by claiming that many customers already have chargers.

The Wall Street Journal Apple wants more iPhone and MacBook

The Wall Street Journal, citing well-informed anonymous sources, reported that Apple wants to increase the production of components for its devices – iPhone and MacBook – outside of China. The company expressed this desire to a number of its contractors.

Sources of The Wall Street Journal say that India and Vietnam are mentioned among the most likely applicants for the expansion of production. The publication notes that Apple’s desire to reduce the production of components in China is caused by strict anti-virus measures, which are introduced by the PRC authorities from time to time, sometimes completely closing entire cities.

Currently, more than 90% of components for the same iPhone, iPad and MacBook are made in China. At the same time, according to analysts cited by The Wall Street Journal, “such a high degree of dependence on one particular country carries potential risks due to the authoritarianism of the communist government in Beijing and its difficult relationship with the United States“.

In April, it became known that about half of Apple’s top 200 suppliers have manufacturing facilities in areas ordered by Chinese authorities to be placed under strict quarantine following a new outbreak of COVID-19. Apple CFO Luca Maestri later said the company could lose between $4 billion and $8 billion in the second quarter due to supply chain disruptions.

By the way, these Redmi models have also not been presented yet, so we don’t really know anything about them.
