Apple To Use USB-C Charging Ports On iPhone From 2024

The European Union has finally mandated a single charger to govern them all. By the end of 2024, the European Union will require all mobile phones, tablets, and other electronic gadgets to have a USB-C charging port, which means Apple’s proprietary Lightningdu port will be phased out of iPhones and iPads.

For more than a decade, European politicians have pushed for a single standard, noting enormous amounts of electronic waste created by unneeded chargers, as well as the frustration experienced by Android and iPhone users who require separate cords for different devices. After getting irritated with the industry’s inability to reach an agreement, it decided to legislate.

E-readers, earbuds, digital cameras, headphones and headsets, handheld videogame consoles, and portable speakers are all covered by the new law, which requires laptops to be updated within 40 months of its implementation.

Consumers will also have the option of purchasing a charger when purchasing a new gadget under the new laws.

According to the EU, the new legislation will stimulate the reuse of charging equipment, saving customers €250 million per year and preventing 11,000 tonnes of electronic trash.
