Many people around the world are waiting tirelessly for the release of the new IPhone 14. Many sources claim that its going to be Apple’s most successful phone as of yet. The phone does seem to get a lot of changes but here’s one thing that will change the whole complexity of the matter.
Apple now uses a lightening connector for charging the phones. In the early days, they used a 30-pin port. But the lightening connector has done wonders since its launch. Apparently it can fully charge your phone under an hour. The users also refer to it as ‘fast charger’. However, Apple might face a heavy blow as many lawmakers are suggesting them to discontinue the lightening connector for iPhone 14.
Authorities in the States want Apple to make and sell the type of charger that is used by everyone around the world. The most used charger in the world is USB-C. Many different android devices already use the type C charger and the US government wants Apple to do the same.
The Verge recently reported that Senators Ed Markey, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren already sent a letter to Apple officials with the provision of using the USB-C charger in exchange for their lightening connector. They also asked the tech company to come up with a plan as soon as possible.
The European Union has already made it mandatory for every tech company to use a common charger all around Europe. The act will be activated around 2024 as reported by The Verge. EU hopes to build a foundation towards sustainable development and to successfully do so, they want tech companies to reduce on e-waste. The bill is just waiting for approval and as soon as it gets approved, every tech firm in Europe will have to change their charger to the type-C charger.
Many Apple enthusiasts report that the company has already started running tests with the USB-C charger. Some also believe that they will be change their whole production methods. All the sources of information point towards only one direction and thats Apple accepting its fate.
