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.
In the current situation, it can be assumed that at least the next generation of iPhones will support the USB-C standard and after yet another change in the latest Lightning technology may be buried with AirPods.
