Brazil’s Ministry of Justice and Public Security has fined Apple 12.275 million reais (£2.04m), the ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.
The move came a day before Apple showcased its new iPhone 14, 14 Pro and Apple Watch Ultra
Brazilian consumer agency Senacon said Apple’s decision not to include power adapters with new iPhones discriminates against consumers by selling an “incomplete product”.
Senacon also said the sale of new iPhones without power adapters was something that the company effectively forcing consumers to buy a second product after purchasing a new iPhone.
The company told Reuters in a statement it would work with Brazilian authorities to “resolve their concerns,” but added it has previously won several court rulings in Brazil on the issue.
“We are confident that our customers are aware of the various options for charging and connecting their devices,” Apple said.
Apple stopped including power adapters and headphones in iPhone boxes with the launch of iPhone 12 in 2020.
