Apple is switching to USB-C: we have no choice

Apple will eventually ditch the Lightning port and convert it to a USB-C port on its iPhones.

The company hasn't officially announced anything, but its senior vice president of global marketing confirmed it in an interview with Joanna Stern of The Wall Street Journal.

When asked if Apple will adopt USB-C, Joswiak said "obviously we'll have to comply, we have no choice."

Joswiak refers to a new set of regulations which were voted in the European Union, as well as in Brazil, which mandate the use of USB-C in smartphones. Apple has long resisted the idea, but now that the EU has started to really push to enforce the law from 2024, the company will have to make the switch if it wants to continue selling iPhones in the EU.

For users, this means that most of their gadgets, whether they're made by Apple or another company, will charge with the same cable.
