Brazil To Apple: You Have Ten Days To Notify iPhone Users About Battery Replacements

Reuters is reporting that Procon-SP, a state agency in Sao Paulo, Brazil, says it has notified Apple it has ten days to notify Brazilian iPhone owners how they can buy battery replacements at new lower prices, But there’s a twist:

The agency said Apple employees refused to sign the notification, but Procon considered the company notified.

That’s not cool. You have to wonder why Apple employees in Brazil took that stance. As for what could happen to Apple if they don’t comply:

The agency did not say what could happen if Apple does not comply, but it has the power to fine or propose legal action against companies for causing losses to consumers.

I’m pretty sure that’s a road that Apple doesn’t want to go down. At least you’d think so. But clearly the “BatteryGate” scandal is not showing any signs of slowing down. Thus you have to wonder what the next shoe to drop will be.
