The rule will have a major effect on Apple as the company will be forced to drop its outdated lightning port on its iPhones for the USB-C one already used by many of its Android competitors.
The European Union today gave its final approval to the common charger directive. The law mandates a USB Type-C port for a whole range of electronic devices such as mobile phones, tablets, and headphones. After this, it will no longer be necessary to buy a different charger every time one purchases a new mobile phone or similar device in Europe.
