- Tram Ho
Last month, Europe published a proposal to force all device manufacturers to use USB-C as the standard port for charging. This is not a big deal for Android brands because they already use USB-C ports on most smartphones. On the other hand, Apple uses the Lightning port to charge the iPhone, of course they disagree and claim that this proposal will stifle innovation.
Now, Europe has poured cold water on Apple’s statement, saying that the proposal also takes into account better standards.
“I don’t see a barrier to innovation,” said European Parliament member and chair of the consumer protection committee, Anna Cavazzini. ” The proposal says that if a new standard emerges that’s better than USB-C, we can tweak the rules.”
It is unclear how the proposal will consider better standards, but in the future, it is likely that there will be another standard that is better than USB-C.
This is not the first time the EU has allayed concerns about the new proposal. A spokesperson told The Verge last month that proprietary wireless charging devices will not require a USB-C port.
