The European Union has passed legislation that all electronic devices will have to have a USB C port for charging by the fall of 2024. This means that Apple’s iPhone will have to replace the Lightning port with a USB C slot by then.

The proposal for this law has been under discussion for over a decade. It aims to get all consumer electronics manufacturers to unify chargers for their devices. This aims to reduce the estimated 11,000 tonnes of electronic waste per year.

So it has now been voted that all mobile phones, tablets, e-readers, camcorders and cameras, portable game consoles and other similar devices of small to medium size will have to use USB C to charge their battery, in order to be sold in EU markets.

This is also true for Apple, which stubbornly and calculatedly equips its iPhone with the Lightning port. This ensures a significant profit from licensing accessories.

Companies will get just over two years to adapt, so Apple will have until the fall of 2024 to equip its iPhone with a USB C port. This would mean that the iPhone 16 will have to get a USB C port instead of Lightning, and maybe next year, the iPhone 15 will switch to it.

Of course, the internet is circulating and it says that Apple will show the middle finger to lawmakers by removing absolutely all slots from the iPhone and switching to exclusively wireless charging and data synchronization.
