European lawmakers approved a new regulation that would require electronic gadgets to use one charger including iPhone.
The European Parliament supported the rule which, when passed, will mean every single cell phone, tablets and cameras sold in the European Union would be outfitted with a USB Type-C charging port toward the end of 2024.
If taken up, that would affect the likes of Apple whose iPhone uses the organization’s exclusive lightening charger.
In principle, Apple would have to include the common charging type if it somehow managed to sell its iPhones in the EU.
The charging rules, which have been over 10 years really taking shape, are as of now going through the EU regulative interaction but have not yet happened.
The European Commission, the EU’s executive arm, settled on the regulation in June 2022. Now, the European Parliament has given it the go-ahead. It is now up to the European Board, which is comprised of delegates of legislatures of EU nations, to give it a last endorsement under the steady look at it before it becomes regulation.
EU legislators contend the new common charger will lessen wastage as customers don’t have to purchase another charger each time they buy a gadget. The EU said that this will also decrease the disposal of new chargers.
If the law is passed, in principle, purchasers would have the option to use a Samsung USB Type-C charger to charge their viable iPhone.
This future-proof law allows for the development of innovative charging solutions in the future, and it will benefit everyone – from frustrated consumers to our vulnerable environment.
