Apple doesn’t have it easy in various markets and is very often the target of various lawsuits and lawsuits. He is simply rich, powerful and everyone wants to “milk” him a little. This time he is dragged through the judicial mud in China, where he was tried by local students. What happened and why is the manufacturer being covered in such an important market?

Apple and chargers – an eternal theme

When Apple Recently, it stopped including charging adapters in the packaging of its phones due to ecology, which provoked contradictory reactions. According to some, it is a meritorious and praiseworthy step, for others it is just a hunt for higher profits.

It seems that in some countries they do not intend to accept this step, and the absence of a charger in the package is the main topic of the latest legal dispute. It flared up in China and the report dealing with the action states that it was submitted in the public interest (despite 9to5Mac).

According to Chinese students, Apple is camouflaging its interest in ecology by promoting the MagSafe charger

Studenti vs. Apple

The lawsuit against the apple maker was filed by students from Beijing and Shanghai, according to which Apple only uses environmental concerns as an excuse to promote its MagSafe wireless chargers. They tried to challenge this environmental argument in court.

They demanded that the manufacturer supply a classic charger to the model iPhone 12 Pro Maxwhich one of the students bought. The lawsuit is therefore aimed directly at last year’s iPhones, but any court decision would of course apply to this year’s iPhones 13which also do not have a charger in the package.

Apple has problems in several countries

And it’s not just China where users don’t like that there are no charging adapters in the package. In Brazil, Apple imposed a fine for this move, and in France, it even blamed itself that the iPhones on the local market must be supplied not only with a charger, but also with EarPods headphones.

We are currently awaiting the further development of this dispute, for which the court is requesting further information from both Apple and the students. We will keep you informed.
