Brazil orders Apple to suspend iPhone sales without charger

The Brazilian government demanded on Tuesday that Apple Inc. (AAPL.O) stop offering iPhones without a battery charger in the nation because it is allegedly giving customers an incomplete product.

The Justice Ministry fined Apple 12.275 million reais ($2.38 million), ordered the sale of all iPhone models that don’t have a power adapter to be suspended, and banned the sale of all iPhone models that are 12 and newer.

The ministry claimed in the decision, which was published in the nation’s official gazette, that the iPhone was missing a crucial component in a “deliberate discriminatory activity against customers.”

The authorities disagreed with Apple’s claim that the action was taken to lessen carbon emissions, claiming that there is no proof that selling the smartphone without a charger is protecting the environment.

The order comes a day before Apple Inc is expected to announce its new iPhone model.

Apple declined to comment on the matter.
