We’ve been hearing for a long time about the possibility of a new law coming out in Europe that will force manufacturers to use a universal charging input, USB-C. Obviously, this law would bring big headaches to Apple, which continues to use the Lightning input on their devices. that worries Apple. According to the European Union proposal (not yet final), manufacturers will have until 15 months to transition to the aforementioned “universal adapter”.
“We remain concerned that strict regulation will force the use of a single type of adapter, inhibiting innovation rather than encouraging it, which will harm consumers in Europe and the rest of the world”, said an Apple representative.
Considering the possible dates presented by the new regulation, it is possible that the iPhone 15 which will be released in 2023 will still have the Lightning entry, but the 2023 (iPhone
model 15) can already be delivered with USB-C input.
