Following new proposed laws from the European Union, the USB-C connector is one step closer to becoming the standard charging port for all smartphones. 

This narrative has been going on for more than a decade, but this is the biggest stride forward so far. 

The European Parliament's Committee on Internal Market and Consumer Protection has agreed to implement a standard charging law, which will need revisions by 2024.

The most significant change will be for Apple, the world's largest smartphone manufacturer that has yet to embrace USB-C. 

Although some Apple products, like as the iPad, employ the charging standard, the Lightning charging connector is still used on all of the company's iPhones.

Apple will need to integrate USB-C technology if it wants to continue selling iPhones in Europe, which it clearly will.

Apple is rumored to be ready to embrace USB-C for the iPhone series, despite the fact that the corporation has previously chastised the European Union for this policy. 

Apple claims that the legislation stifles innovation and would increase e-waste by forcing customers to switch from Lightning to USB-C connectors.

According to certain experts, such as Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple may switch to USB-C as early as the iPhone 15 in 2023.
