Brazilian authorities plan to force Apple to abandon the Lightning connector in favor of USB-C in all iPhones as early as next year.
The local regulator, Anatel, which acts as Brazil’s consumer protection authority, has put forward a new proposal requiring all smartphones in the country to use a single USB-C charging port.
Anatel says the move to USB-C will provide “greater convenience for consumers” and could reduce e-waste worldwide. The proposed law in Brazil will come into force on July 1, 2024, if it is approved.
Earlier, US senators also proposed that Apple be forced to move the iPhone to USB-C, after which authoritative sources, including Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, confirmed that the company is testing a smartphone with a USB-C port.
Most likely, the first iPhone with USB-C will be the iPhone 15 in 2023.
