EU plans to make USB-C mandatory for all smartphones

The smartphone companies will get two years to adapt to the new rules once they take effect

The European Union has now planned to pass a law which will direct the smartphone industry to adopt an uniform charging cord for all mobile devices. This initiative can solve many problems of many users.

 

The authorities proposed a legislation that would mandate the USB-C cables for charging. Many smartphone companies have already adopted USB-C cables as their primary charging device.

 

The main issue is with Apple. The company said that the new rules would limit innovation, and that would end up hurting consumers.

 

The iPhones comes with the company’s own Lightning charging port. Also the newest models comes with cables that can be plugged into a USB-C socket.

 

The new policy will be welcomed by millions of users and also the EU also wants to cut down around 11,000 metric tons of electronic waste. It would lessen the e-waste thrown by the users.

 

EU also called for making the fast charging technology as the first choice of technology for charging and give consumers the right to choose whether to buy new devices with or without a charger.

 

The smartphone companies will get two years to adapt to the new rules once they take effect.
