We had already told you a few days ago that the European Union was restarting the concept of a standard charger for all electronic devices, even after the vote was made yesterday It is clear that this is a step you want to take to the old cont inent
The European Parliament has ignored Apple's requests and voted overwhelmingly allowing the carrier, the result being 582 votes cast the election, 40 against and 37 six against. Accordingly, "the European Parliament calls on the Commission to introduce strengthened rules on standard chargers in July 2020 as a result of the urgent need for EU regulatory action. reduce electrical waste, which requires mandatory introduction of standard chargers for all mobile devices. "
The standard charger could come in 2020
There are different readings on this decision, it is true that with a single charger it can be very easy for users and possibly it would not be necessary to purchase multiple cablesHowever, there are two main doubts about this debate, which is it would produce a lot of waste the parliament wants to avoid it.
On the other hand, and this is really affecting Apple, we have a lot of people current cables and accessories that use Lightning port and are completely undesirable in the event of changing the contact, something would generate electrical waste.
And on the other hand we have the choice of connector, it's normal to choose USB-C, but, What could happen in just a few years from the exciting new connector?, until recently Micro-USB was the governing body and we were connecting the most advanced communications. In the event that in a few years it is regenerated and the connector for the better, we will once again have the ingredients for the bare wires and cables. Or, as Apple says, this could mean a go back in terms of new stuff
However, with the possibility that Apple is forced to convert the Lightning connector for iPhone and iPad to USB-C, it is not clear that the European Union will allow Apple to install an adapter in the box for this connection. Anyway, the future goes by wirelessly, we know that Apple is working on an iPhone without ports, which is you will only be charged wirelessly, by 2021, so this rate could eventually affect the company less.
