Apple sued for selling iPhone without charger in China: Report

Beijing: A group of university students in China has sued tech giant Apple for not including a charger with the iPhone 12 Pro Max. This information was given in media reports.

Students claimed that the included USB-C to Lightning cable was not compatible with other chargers. According to the advertisement a student was unable to charge the phone.

The students argued that Apple was simply using this as an excuse to promote MagSafe wireless chargers that waste more energy than their wired counterparts.

They want the iPhone to supply the charger as well as pay 100 yuan ($16) for legal fees and breach of contract.

Apple reportedly told the Beijing Virtual Court that it is common practice for phone brands to sell power adapters separately and that the government has approved the practice.

However, students pointed out that many Chinese companies offer a choice of adapters in the box. For example, you can buy Xiaomi Mi 11 with or without a power brick.

The report said the matter is still ongoing and there is no guarantee it will compensate students or change Apple’s no-charger policy.

Even if the case does indicate a change, it may only ask Apple to offer the charger as an option for checkout.
