Hundreds of iPhones were seized in Brazil for failing to comply with charging brick regulation: Technology claims that Brazilian officials seized “hundreds of iPhones” from various Brazilian retail establishments because they did not come with a charging cable. As far as we can tell, Brazil has been enforcing legislation to prevent the sale of iPhones without accompanying chargers.
It appears like Apple isn’t having much fun in Brazil. Due to Apple no longer putting a charger in the box, Brazil’s Ministry of Justice has issued a ban on the sale of iPhones there. It appears that the regulators are again irritated with the corporation for failing to follow the rules.
According to a Tecnoblog story, Brazilian officials seized “hundreds of iPhones” from a variety of retail locations for lacking a charger. To make sure that iPhones aren’t still being sold in Brazil without chargers in the box, it appears that Brazil has been strictly enforcing the law.
“Operation Discharge”: A Brazilian regulator seizes various iPhone models that lack chargers
Brazilian consumer protection organization PROCON appears to be responsible for the enforcement. According to the report, the agency seized hundreds of iPhones that were being sold in several stores in Brasilia, the Brazilian capital. The seized devices included the newest iPhone 14, which was released just a few months ago, as well as iPhone 11 and older generations.
Operation Discharge was launched in response to the Ministry of Justice’s decision to forbid Apple from selling iPhones in Brazil without chargers. The Ministry views this approach as a tie-in sale that is unfair to the customer because it forces users to purchase an additional item in order for the iPhone to function.
However, Apple appealed this ruling. According to Technology, this most recent seizure took place a few days ago, and since then, Apple has been able to obtain an injunction that will allow it to continue selling iPhones in Brazil without a charging brick until a final decision has been made.
Regulators’ intervention is making it harder for Apple to continue with its decisions on iPhone charging in the interim. If more countries follow Brazil, the business might be forced to offer a charging brick once more with its finest iPhone models and add USB-C to its upcoming iPhone models.
