iPhone 12 charger: Apple accused of promoting MagSafe charger under the guise of environmental impact

A group of students from China want Apple to provide a charging brick for the iPhone 12 Pro Max purchased by a student, pay CNY 100 (roughly Rs 1,200) for breach of contract and also cover the legal fees

Apple iPhone 12 series came with some great upgrades. Apple launched the 2020 iPhone with a new design and upgraded specs but took away one key component - the charger. The iPhone 13 too does not get a charger in the box. Apple stated that most smartphone users have a charger at home and therefore to reduce the environmental impact, it ditched the charger. For this, the company is facing a lawsuit in China.

A group of students from China claim that Apple is using environmental causes as an excuse to promote its MagSafe chargers. The students want Apple to provide a charging brick for the iPhone 12 Pro Max purchased by a student, pay CNY 100 (roughly Rs 1,200) for breach of contract and also cover the legal fees, reported Vice.

The students further stated that Apple provides a USB Type-C to Lightning cable in the box with the iPhone 12 series, and that most people have a USB Type-A charging adapter. Apple switched to a USB Type-C to Lightning cable in 2019 when it launched the iPhone 11 series (Review).
