iPhone 12: Using third-party charger does not affect warranty

The iPhone 12 line reached the market without a charger in the box – and the change was accompanied by customer questions. Recently, Apple ended one of the smartphone inquiries and revealed that using third-party power supplies doesn’t affect the device warranty.

According to Apple, iPhone 12 users will not need to buy a charger of the brand to avoid violating the smartphone’s warranty. The company stressed that the benefit is valid if the user uses any power source approved by the National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel).

The question arose because of Apple’s warranty certificate, which can be read in full here. The document states that the company does not cover damages caused by the use of third-party accessories that “do not meet Apple Product specifications.”

According to the manufacturer, for chargers, it is enough that the equipment follows the safety standards of the country’s regulatory agency so that the warranty is not violated. “The use of these chargers will not affect the product warranty,” the company said in a statement sent to Techblog.

Apple’s position on the matter comes after Procon-SP notifies the company about the absence of chargers in the iPhone 12 case.

For those who intend to use an Apple product with the iPhone 12, the company offers chargers at its official store in Brazil. The 20W model is the most basic among the options and costs R$199.

The company also launched the MagSafe line here, which has chargers and magnetic covers. Wireless power platforms are available for prices starting at R$499, but they also don’t have a plug-in source, which must be purchased separately.

The iPhone 12 is already available in Brazil and can be found for prices up to R$ 14 thousand.
