Brazil’s decision to prohibit the sale of iPhones without chargers will be challenged by Apple.

The Brazilian Ministry of Justice has issued a decree prohibiting Apple from marketing iPhones without chargers there. It also ordered the cancellation of the iPhone 12’s registration with the nation’s national telecoms agency Anatel and slapped the tech giant with a punishment of 12.275 million Brazilian reals ($2.38 million). With the debut of the iPhone 12 in 2020, Apple discontinued including chargers with its mobile devices, citing environmental concerns.

The business claimed that by selling gadgets without power adapters, the number of production steps required for each unit would be reduced. Apple stated that the decision to cease packaging chargers will save 861,000 tonnes of copper, zinc, and tin in its 2021 Environmental Progress Report. Additionally, being able to ship devices more effectively would lower the company’s carbon dioxide emissions because shipping pallets could hold up to 70% more iPhone 12 boxes.
