The Brazilian government has suspended sales of iPhones without chargers, according to a report

Brazil’s government on Tuesday ordered Apple to stop selling iPhones in the country without a battery charger, saying the company is providing consumers with an incomplete product.

The Justice Department fined Apple 12.275 million reais ($2.38 million) and ordered it to cancel sales of the iPhone 12 and later models, in addition to suspending the sale of any iPhone model that does not come with a charger.

In an order published in the country’s official gazette, the ministry argued that the iPhone lacked the essential element of a “deliberate discriminatory practice against consumers.”

Authorities rejected Apple’s argument that the purpose of the practice was to reduce carbon emissions and said there was no evidence of environmental protection in selling a smartphone without a charger. The order comes a day before Apple Inc launches its new model in the country.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
