The European Union sends a warning to “Apple” against tampering with (USB C) connections

EU Commissioner for the Internal Market, Thierry Breton, has warned Apple of the consequences of tampering with the performance of its charging and data transfer (USB C) connections.

Breton indicated in a letter to Apple; According to the German news agency, it will not be allowed to impose any restrictions on the performance of USB C connections, and that if this happens, it will prevent the sale of iPhone phones in the European Union in the future.

And the European Union had passed a law, last year, that compels all technical companies to unify the charging port in their devices and include a USB C port so that they can be sold within the European Union.

The law gave technology companies until the end of 2024 to comply with the law, otherwise the sale of violating devices will be prohibited after the deadline expires.

Apple relies on the “Lightning” charging port in iPhone phones, but press reports indicated, earlier this year, that Apple will switch to a USB C port with the upcoming iPhone 15 phones at the end of this year, but it will restrict the charging speed, data transfer if unapproved cables are used; That is, it does not hold the MFI or “Made For iPhone” license that Apple grants to accessories.

Apple has switched to the USB C port completely in some products such as iPads, but it still relies on the Lightning port in iPhones and AirPods.

The EU Charging Port Standardization Act aims to reduce e-waste, sustain products and make the use of different devices more convenient.
