Apple was fined more than $2 million by the Brazilian Ministry of Justice, which also banned the sale of iPhones without charging cables

Due to Apple’s decision to no longer provide a power adaptor with the sale of new iPhones, the Brazilian Ministry of Justice is threatening the corporation with a large fine. The Ministry of Justice fined Apple R$ 12.275 million ($2.34 million) and ordered them to cease selling all iPhone models that do not come with a power adaptor.

After hearing the news of the ban and the punishment, Apple released a statement. SEANCON, a division of the Ministry of Justice, issued the fine and the company promised to address its issues.

We have already won several court rulings in Brazil on this matter and we are confident that our customers are aware of the various options for charging and connecting their devices.” Apple BR – Translated from Portuguese

Even if Apple is found to have violated the sales ban, the Ministry will not immediately implement the fine.

The Ministry has fined and banned Apple for selling iPhones without a charging adapter because of this. Additionally, it has stated that Apple has not demonstrated that the purported environmental benefits of removing the charger exist.
