A judge in Brazil has ordered Apple to pay its customers $1,000 for not including a charger with its latest iPhone.

Judge Vandelei Caires Pinheiro ruled in favor of the male customer who claimed Apple violated Brazil's Article 39 of the consumer Code and deemed it a "tie sale" which is considered an abusive practice by not including a charger.

“According to article 39 of the Consumer Code (CDC), “tie sale” is an abusive and prohibited practice in Brazil, so it is not allowed to sell cell phones and chargers separately. Therefore, Apple is being sentenced to selling an iPhone model and charger separately to a consumer in the city of Goiânia. According to the result issued by Judge Vanderlei Caires Pinheiro, of the 6th Civil Court of Goiânia, Apple must compensate the consumer R$ 5 thousand for carrying out the “tie sale” of the company’s devices,”the judge said in a statement.

It is pretty annoying not getting a charger with the phone!
