EU agrees on Common charging port for all Mobile Phones
Apple, one of the world’s largest mobile phone sellers, will have to replace the chargers for iPhones sold in Europe by 2024, as EU countries and legislators have banned mobile phones, tablets and cameras. Agreed on a mobile charging port, this is the first decision of its kind in the world.
According to the foreign news agency ‘Reuters’, this political interference has come at a time when the companies have failed to reach a common solution.
Regarding this decision, the European Commission says that it will create convenience for consumers and save their money.
Europe has been trying to introduce a single mobile charging port for more than a decade after consumer complaints surfaced, with iPhone and Android users complaining about having to use different chargers to charge their devices and facing difficulties.
IPhones are charged via a lighting cable, while USB devices are used to charge Android devices.
The European Parliament said in a statement that by the fall of 2024, the USB Type Connector will become a common charging port for all mobile phones, tablets and cameras used in the European Union.
