The European Union passed a law against Apple, obliging to add a USB-C port to all iPhones by 2024

The European Parliament has passed a law requiring all electronics manufacturers to use USB-C as a charger by the end of 2024.

The law requires manufacturers of smartphones, tablets, cameras, headphones, game consoles, portable speakers, e-readers, keyboards, mice, laptops and navigators to use USB-C if the charging power is not more than 100 watts.

The exception is devices that are too small for USB-C installation. These include smartwatches, fitness bracelets and sports equipment.

First of all, the law is directed against Apple, which continues to use Lightning in iPhones and AirPods. Other smartphone manufacturers have long switched to USB-C.

Apple opposed the passage of the law. The company said it would increase e-waste and limit innovation.

Apple is rumored to release the iPhone 15 with USB-C next year. Also in 2023, the company will introduce USB-C charging cases for AirPods 3 and AirPods Pro 2nd generation. [MacRumors]
