Apple shows off iPhone 15’s new USB-C port
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s finally here.
While almost every other phone in the world had already made the switch to the USB-C, Apple stayed faithful to its lightning charging port.
Apple shows off the iPhone 15’s new USB-C port.
From the end of 2024 onwards, all mobile phones, tablets, and handheld cameras must have a USB-C charging slot to fit new regulations from the European Union.
It was this change in legislation which has most likely forced Apple to change their ways and adopt the universal charger.
And it’s not only the iPhone that Apple have ditched the lightning port on, with their latest iPads and MacBooks also being charged via a USB-C.
Last year Apple said the reasoning behind their switch saying: “Governments get to do what they do and obviously we’ll have to comply. We have no choice.”
The reaction online has been one of complete jubilation with people screaming from the rooftops that they’ll now be able to charge more or less everything with the same USB-C charger.
It sure is going to make our lives a little bit easier.
