Apple Will Have to Comply With the EU and Switch iPhone to USB-C

Apple will have to move to USB-C on iPhones and the rest of its devices that still have Lightning connectors in order to comply with new EU rules, Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of worldwide marketing, said.

Joswiak, also known as Joz, said during the Wall Street Journal’s Tech Live event that Apple ultimately respects the EU’s decision to make universal chargers mandatory in consumer electronics devices. “We have to comply,” Joz said, indirectly confirming Apple’s move to USB-C in the future.
