Apple confirms that its iPhones will have USB-C | Digital Trends Spanish

The new regulations of the European Union finally forced Apple to take a definitive position: your iPhones and other devices will have to use USB-C cablesto comply with the universality of load.

The news was confirmed in The Wall Street Journal by Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, Greg Joswiak, who responded by saying, “Obviously, we’ll have to comply; We have no other choice.”

Joswiak further added that “Europeans are the ones who dictate the time for European customers.” Currently, the law dictates that “all mobile phones and tablets” will have to use USB-C by “autumn 2024.” Joswiak declined to say whether the company would include the connector in phones sold outside the EU.

But he made it abundantly clear that Apple isn’t happy about being legally coerced into making the change. Before acknowledging that the company must comply with the law, Joswiak went into a lengthy explanation of how Apple has historically preferred to go its own way and trust its engineers rather than be forced to adopt hardware standards by lawmakers.
