Brazilian government tells Apple it can’t sell iPhones without a charger anymore

Brazil dropped fairly the bomb on Apple this week when that nation’s government informed the tech big that it can not sell iPhones inside its borders without a wall charger.

The order comes from Brazil’s Ministry of Justice and Public Security (opens in new tab) who claims that Apple is promoting an “incomplete product” to individuals. The Ministry even goes so far as to call the lack of chargers (opens in new tab) a “deliberate discriminatory practice against consumers.” On prime of that, the Brazilian government is ordering Apple to pay a positive of over 12 million reais (round $2.3 million) and the iPhone 12 will not be registered with the nation’s National Telecommunications Agency; higher often called Anatel (opens in new tab). You can consider it as Brazil’s model of the United States Federal Communications Commission (the FCC).
