The European Union recently approved the law on the use of a uniform charging port for some smart devices. Apple officials made the first statements about the Type-C input iPhone.
The European Union Parliament pressed the button for a uniform charge input for smart phones and tablets on environmental grounds. This situation, which has been the subject of discussion for a long time, has received a response from the Apple wing.
iPhone may not have Type-C port in non-EU countries
“Obviously we will have to comply with the new law, we have no choice,” said Greg Joswiak, head of marketing at Apple. We will abide by the stated date as they dictate the timing for our European customers.” made statements.
The law that came into force states that all mobile phones and tablets must be produced with Type-C input from the third quarter of 2024. Joswiak has made it clear that Apple is not happy to be legally forced to switch.
“Underlining that Apple is progressing through the technologies it has developed, Joswiak said, “When you look at the history of our company, you will see that it has always progressed in its own way. Apple is a company that prefers to rely on its own engineers rather than legal enforcers. There are many bad examples, such as Micro USB and hearing aid compatibility, to explain why our company produces its own technologies.” said.
Stating that the company is also considering other options, Joswiak left unanswered the question about iPhone sales with Type-C input in non-European Union countries. However, it is estimated that the company is working on the iPhone without a charging port.
