iPhones with USB-C coming soon: Apple to succumb to new EU directive

Not all iPhones get the battery percentage display back


All smartphone makers will have to rely on USB-C in the future, including Apple. This is what the recently adopted EU directive seeks. The iPhone inventor isn’t exactly happy about this, but has to bow down, as the manager confirms: “We have no other choice”.

In conversation with senior Apple executives, it came to the fore wall street journal Greg Joswiak (SVP Worldwide Marketing) and Craig Federighi (SVP Software Engineering) with the youngest EU resolutions and the obligation to equip most mobile tech devices with USB-C ports by 2024. Apple has been fighting against the contemporary, universal standard for years – at least when it comes to iPhone goes.

Apple will give at least in Europe

This path seems to be over now: “Of course we have to stick to it, we have no other choice,” said Joswiak in response to the new EU rules. Is the Switch from Lightning to USB-C Already subsequent years It is not yet clear whether or not by 2024. “Europeans set the schedule for European customers,” Joswiak continued. When asked whether Apple Will continue to equip new iPhones with the Lightning port outside the EU, the manager did not want to answer. Apple doesn’t really like a legal binding for USB-C ports. Joswiak expects a lot of e-waste as the iPhone switches from Lightning to USB-C. The EU is trying to reduce this in the long term by choosing a uniform interface. Managers also did not make any concrete statements about the possibility of doing completely without physical connection and handling of power and possibly data transmission via MagSafe.
