Woman wins Apple lawsuit for lack of iPhone 12 charger
an Apple Lost A lawsuit was recently filed in Brazil for not bringing the iPhone 12 charger in the box. Mariana Morales Oliveira, a resident of Santos, São Paulo, won in court the right to get her smartphone accessory from an apple.
The ruling was announced on May 23 and gave the customer a reason, accusing Apple of practicing "tethering." In Portugal, consumer protection law prohibits this practice.
The attorney for the plaintiff, Rafael Quaresma, explained that the problem is that the consumer buys the phone, and since he does not bring a charger, he is required to purchase the accessory separately. In addition, he adds that the alleged protection for the environment is relative, because Apple has not stopped selling or producing this product.
Thus, the judge decided that Apple's brand should offer the customer a charger for free within 10 calendar days. Otherwise, a daily fine of 200 riyals up to a maximum of 5,000 riyals will be applied (approximately € 31 to € 785). Presently, this is the first known case of defeating Apple in the Sao Paulo court for this reason.
However, this court ruling sets precedents for others who bought iPhone 12 without a charger to file a complaint in court.
