iPhones will be Required to Use USB-C Charging by 2024

By the fall of 2024, the European Union (EU) will have secured an agreement that will make USB-C charging a requirement for iPhones and all other mobile phones. Additional consumer gadgets that need cable charging are included in the proposal, including digital cameras, tablets, and, at a later date, laptops.The EU Parliament and Council have agreed to terms for universal USB-C charging, which the parliament has fought for for the past ten years. The European Commission indicated in September that it intends to pass legislation mandating USB-C charging. The EU Parliament and Council will formally approve the deal.

The regulation will include portable video game consoles, e-readers, earbuds, headphones, and headsets if it is authorized. In today’s decision, the EU Parliament stated that products in the aforementioned categories “that are rechargeable through a wired cable will have to be provided with a USB Type-C connector, independent of their manufacturer.”

Laptops will be required to confirm within 40 months after the policy’s implementation. Given the fact that many USB-C charging laptops are ultralights, it’ll be fascinating to observe how low-cost designs manage the rules. The guideline would also standardize fast-charging speeds, ensuring that customers can expect their gadgets to charge at the same rate regardless of their charger.

The guideline would also standardize fast-charging speeds, ensuring that customers can expect their gadgets to charge at the same rate regardless of their charger. OEM charging speeds should be “harmonized for devices that enable fast charging, allowing customers to charge their smartphones at the same pace with any compatible charger,” according to the agreement.
