EU is planning to force mobile phone manufacturers to use universal charging interface

In the past decade, the European Union has been trying to promote mobile phone manufacturers to use a universal data interface for charging, and in 2009 "convinced" 14 mobile phone manufacturers such as Apple, Samsung, Huawei and other signed a voluntary agreement. FDN360P

Vendors are committed to adopting the MicroUSB interface by 2011. According to Reuters, the EU intends to write "a unified standard charging interface" into the law, requiring mobile phone manufacturers to enforce this regulation.

In response to questions raised by EU legislators on August 1 this year, the European Commission expressed dissatisfaction with the “status quo” of voluntary changes by mobile phone manufacturers, and intends to launch an impact assessment study in the near future to assess the benefits and costs of different programs. It will help the committee decide whether to force mobile phone manufacturers to implement a protocol that harmonizes standard interfaces. FTLX8571D3BCL

In theory, the EU proposes a unified standard charging interface that can reduce the cost of consumer use and reduce the environmental pollution of discarded mobile phone accessories, but this is not a good thing.

For Apple using the Lightning interface, it is possible to introduce a standard-compliant charger or a corresponding transfer interface for the EU market to solve the problem of inconsistent charging interface. If this is the case, it may increase the price of the iPhone in the EU in disguise.
