Apple says iPhones will finally get USB-C ports
After long waiting, Apple says the iPhone will get USB-C ports. Earlier this month, the European Union Legislation passed That would require all phones and tablets sold in the European Union to use USB-C charging ports by 2024. It’s a move with huge ramifications for a company like Apple, which sells iPhones with the same physical design in every region of the world. All of these iPhones now use Apple’s own Lightning connector to charge and connect accessories.
This week, Apple finally It will bring USB-C ports to iPhone. Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of global marketing The Wall Street Journal Reporter Joanna Stern reports that USB-C ports are coming.
“Governments have to do what they are going to do,” Joswiak said at the WSJ Tech Live conference this week. “Obviously we’re going to have to comply. We don’t have a choice.”
Apple is clearly not entirely satisfied with this ruling. This is a change that the company has resisted for years. Apple’s overall business ethos is to control every part of its product line. That’s why the company switched from Intel chips to its own chips proprietary silicone And quadrupled on his device Broadcast service offers. The goal is to keep customers Under the dome of the apple any time. Having a special charger on the iPhone was just another part of that strategy. This meant that iPhone users would have to get charging cords directly from Apple, rather than taking that money to any other manufacturer. USB-C wires.
Of course, Apple isn’t likely to take much of a financial hit from the Lightning cable’s death. It’s likely to run entirely on USB-C next year, and may even hilariously market the new connector as a way to reduce excess electronic waste at the upcoming cheerful iPhone announcement event. However, the forced change shows how much the company wants to hold on to loved ones, or at least adjust its products to its own schedule rather than someone else’s.
There is no information yet on the fate of the Lightning ports on the Apple Pencil, Magic Trackpad, and other Apple accessories that currently rely on the connector.
