Future iPhones will not use the lightning port anymore bc of this decision, and I’m kinda here for it. Experts say this will change the iPhone design for everyone on earth, so this affects all of us

thank christ, now my mum can stop asking me for an iphone charger despite me being android only since 2016

Also: this law is for ALL consumer electronics. All Laptops of all brands will also have to use USB-C ports for charging starting in 2026. This is such a huge win for consumers and your right to

The only reason I’m into this is bc my iPad also uses USB-C so it’ll make charging a bit easier. If my iPad still used Lightning tho I would be against this :queenga:

they should also change the airpods case to match now since lightning is effectively being killed in one motion

It's the right decision, and it's fair.

No more worrying about blowing up your Laptop with a third party charger because manufacturers would have you rather buy a new one than provide a new adapter.

I hate usb-c:grr:

Since usb-c many products comes without a cable because "f-ck u and the eu decisions, buy one yourself"

GOOD. now if they could just make the rest of the world use the EU standard for power outlets that would be beautiful! (obv never gonna happen)

Interested to see how this plays out.  I personally think Apple will move to only Mag Safe charging instead of adopting USB-C for their phones.  I’m pretty sure the new regulation doesn’t include wireless charging.
