The European Union has Uniform the Charger to be a USB-C, What about Apple?

Post a Comment
Apple may be forced to make an iPhone with a USB-C charger in 2024. This happened because the European Parliament had reached an agreement that the USB-C would be a public charger port in all European Union countries that year.

Not only Apple, this agreement will force electronic goods manufacturers who want to operate in European Union countries to adopt USB-C as a standard charging.

This policy aims to reduce electronic waste. So, people do not need to worry about different charging standards and connections that often require the device to have its own charger and cable. For example, when you have two Android and Apple devices, you need a different charger for each device.

Thus, if Apple wants to continue to sell iPhone and iPad in Europe, which has a population of around 447 million people, Apple must fully adopt USB-C. Actually it is not a big problem, because some of the products, besides the current iPhone, AirPods, and iPad, can be filled with USB-C.

However, this means that the iPhone must lose the Lightning connector which has been a superior Apple phone for years. Apple is almost certain not to make a different version of the iPhone specifically for Europe. The company based in Cupertino is also impossible to leave a profitable market like the European Union.

Given that most of the other Apple products have adopted USB-C, it makes sense if Apple does the same thing for the iPhone. iPhone 14 is expected to use a USB-C. But the rumor has disappeared lately. The possibility was released with iPhone 15, or the latest iPhone 16.

iPhone 15 is the most appropriate candidate to make a shift from Lightning to USB-C because the cellphone will still be launched next year.

More important than all, workers or students will be happy with this news. Making an iPhone with a USB-C is a good idea. Users no longer need to be frustrated because they have to bring different charions and cables, even in Apple products themselves, especially iOS, Android and Windows mixture devices.
