Apple was sentenced to pay nearly 7,000 yuan to users for not sending chargers

A recent court ruling in the Brazilian city of Goiania showed that a judge ordered Apple to pay 5,000 riel (about 6,937 yuan) in damages after a consumer sued for not having a charging head.

The judge found that Apple violated the local consumer terms for the sale of smartphones, that is, the mobile phone must be equipped with a charging head. The charging head can be sold separately, but the premise is that it is not necessary to affect the normal function of the mobile phone.

Apple's defense in court is that the iPhone comes with a C2L data cable, and USB-C interface chargers abound, and it is not necessary to use the original Apple style. In addition, Apple reiterates that its approach is environmentally friendly. (Fast Technology)
