 Fernando Capez is executive director of Proton Sp. He stated that Apple should understand that Brazil has strong laws in regards to the protection of custormers and these laws have to be respected by  them. Considering that Apple earned $111.4 billion in revenue within three months into 2020, including the sale of iPhone 12 models, this fine shouldn’t be much of a bother to Apple. Apple is yet to respond to the fine.
