iPhone 12 charger Apple accused of promoting MagSafe

Several great improvements were made to the Apple iPhone 12 series. With the 2020 iPhone, Apple introduced a new design and upgraded specs, but they removed one key component – the charger. The iPhone 13 also doesn’t come with a charger. As most smartphone users have their own chargers at home, Apple did away with the charger to reduce environmental impact. A lawsuit has been filed against the company in China.

Students from China claim Apple uses environmental issues to promote its MagSafe chargers. A student purchased an iPhone 12 Pro Max from Apple and demanded that Apple provide a charging brick, pay CNY 100 (roughly Rs 1,200) for breach of contract, and also cover the legal fees, reported Vice.

Furthermore, they stated that Apple includes a Type-C to Lightning cable in the box with the iPhone 12 series, and that most people own a charging adapter for Type-A USB. Upon launching the iPhone 11 series in 2019, Apple switched from a USB Type-A cable to a Lightning cable (Review). 

The company is not facing a legal action for not including a charger in the box for the first time. The Brazilian consumer protection regulator fined Apple $2 million earlier this year and required Apple to include a charging adapter in the box. “Misleading advertising,” selling devices without chargers, and unfair terms were among Apple’s fines.
