iPhones to get USB-C by 2024 – Apple

iPhones to get USB-C by 2024 - Apple

Apple has confirmed its compliance with the European Union’s common charger law that mandates phone makers to adopt USB-C connectors from 2024.

At the Wall Street Journal Tech Live conference on Tuesday, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, Greg Joswiak said, “Obviously we’ll have to comply.”

On Monday, ministers from EU member states declared the final approval of the common charger law that was in existence for a decade, after the legislative bodies had all voted in favour.

The European Council stamp was sealed which means that all electronic devices including mobile phones and laptops come 2024 will support USB-C charging.

Joswiak did not state exactly when Apple would adopt this change, as opposed to the proprietary Lightning charger it uses, but this revolution will take place in 2024 while denouncing that the two sides have been in a “little bit of a disagreement.”

He said, “We think the approach would have been better environmentally and better for our customers to not have a government that is that prescriptive,”

EU lawmakers contend that the proclamation will subsidize the wastage of loitering chargers by consumers and frequent changes to different designs by manufacturers.
