Brazil said in public on Tuesday that we are banning those iPhones that come with no charger brick. The problem started when Apple removed the charger brick last year to reduce its carbon footprint and to reduce the size of the box. According to the Brazilian ministry of justice, Brazil has also fined Apple $2.34 million which is around 12.275 million Brazilian dollars.
According to the order, the environmental reasons given by Apple are not enough to remove the charger brick from the box. Anyway, the charger has to be purchased separately and it also becomes a huge burden for new customers, this is only for marketing.
Brazil made a very good point, If the company wants to enhance its user experience without any false marketing, then it should change its lighting cable to USB type C. And in the same year, the Telecom Regulator of the country also said that “Consider making USB C Type ports for all smartphones because it’s obviously the best option”.
This is not the first time the company has been fined by Brazil, they are fined several times by small companies and brazil leaders. And in response to this, The company said that we have already won a lot of court rulings, And according to us, our customers understand the environmental problems.
They know how important it is to reduce carbon footprints, and customers have many options when it comes to charging Apple products there are lots of options available in the market.
Statement by Apple employee
Apple’s employee said that “By removing the charging bricks, the company has cut carbon emissions as much as taking 500,000 cars off the road.”
