Apple confirms it will switch to USB-C for the iPhone

Apple will replace the Lightning port with USB-C on the next iPhone.

Apple confirms the iPhone and other devices with the Lightning port will switch to USB-C. 

Greg Joswiak, Apple's VP of worldwide marketing, revealed during the Wall Street Journal's Tech Live event that Apple respects the decision of the EU and will comply with new rules. 

Under the new rules, all manufacturers who want to sell their products in Europe will have to adopt USB-C as the charging port. By the end of 2024, all phones, tablets, and cameras have to use USB-C for charging. The rules will extend to notebooks in 2026.

Earlier this year, Bloomberg claimed Apple is testing an iPhone design with USB-C, and the switch to USB-C is expected in 2023. In a recent report, Bloomberg speculated Apple's move to USB-C could be short-lived as Apple is aiming for a wireless-first future for its devices with some variant of the cancelled AirPower technology. This is believed to be implemented within the next 10 years.
