One of the issues that Apple has been most criticized for in recent years is that it does not give up the Lightning port, and it seems that this situation will now change. Due to the decision of the European Union Parliament in June of last year 2024until the end of EuropeIt decided to switch the technological products on sale in Turkey to the USB-C port. While companies have time until the end of 2024, the US manufacturer September It is preparing to switch to USB-C in the iPhone 15 series, which will be introduced in May.
New details about the iPhone 15 series with USB-C came
EUhas decided that technological products such as smart phones, tablets, computers have different ports and due to the environmental waste load created by this situation, technological products that go on sale in Europe until the end of 2024 will switch to USB-C input. This is the main reason why Apple gave up the Lightning port, which it used for many years.
The new law went into effect on December 27, 2022, and tech companies have until December 28, 2024 to comply with this decision. Otherwise, they will face deterrent sanctions.
For charging phones sold in 27 EU countries from 2024 USB-C port will need to be used. This will include wearables like the iPhone and even AirPods. For this reason, Apple, speeding up its work, will include a USB-C port on the iPhone 15 models.
It is worth noting that there is an important detail here. Because recent reports suggest that Apple will use USB-C in iPhone 15 models, but it will work through a Lightning-compatible circuit. This may mean that features such as high-speed data transfer and fast charging will not be available.
If the claims and rumors are true, we may see a USB-C-looking Lightning port on the iPhone 15, so to speak. As of iPhone 16, which is expected to be released in 2024, users are expected to benefit from all the features of USB-C.
This situation from the leak consists of and has not been made by the company yet. not verified let me specify. Other than that, although the exact date is not yet known, it is claimed that the company will remove the charging input from almost all of its devices in the coming periods and will continue on its way with wireless charging. If this rumor turns out to be true, the new decision of the EU will be broken and the life of iPhone models with USB-C input will be shorter than expected.
