Brazil has banned iPhone sales

The Brazil government has imposed a 2 million US Dollars fine on Apple for selling iPhones without chargers.

Apple has been dealt a major blow in Brazil just before the release of their newest product.

According to a report from Reuters, the Brazilian government has ordered all retailers to stop selling iPhones without chargers.

The Ministry of Justice has imposed a fine of 2.275 million Brazilian Real.

The 2.2 Million Brazilian Real equates to approximately 2.34 million US Dollars.

With the launch of its iPhone 12 in 2020, Apple stopped giving chargers with iPhones.

The company says the change was better for the environment and is a step to reduce carbon emissions.

Apple says that the step was taken to achieve its goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2030.

The Ministry of Justice has rejected Apple's arguments, stating that there's no evidence to support Apple's claim on environmental safety by not providing chargers with phones.

The government has argued that they are imposing fines and a ban on iPhones due to the lack of power adapters not included in Apple's products.
