EU proposes mandating all mobile devices use USB-C for charging, including iPhones.
The European Commission proposed requiring all small tech gadgets like phones, tablets, and headphones to use the same chargers. This aims to cut down on waste, which the commission estimates is over 11,000 tons every year. Apple is the biggest holdout: some iPad versions have USB-C ports but iPhones still use Lightning connectors. Apple argues that this would stifle innovation and hurt consumers. If the law is passed manufacturers will have two years to make all new devices USB-C compatible, just enough time to let Apple switch to wireless only devices 😀. Link
