Apple says EU Common Charger Move Can Hamper Development

The voluntary solution does not work, and it is time to look at legislation

On Thursday, iPhone maker Apple pushed back against the proposal by EU lawmakers for a Common Charger, warning that the change could hamper innovation, create a mountain of electronic waste and irk customers. Apple’s statement came a week after European Parliament lawmakers called for a Common Charger for all mobile devices and revised a draft law to say the ability to work with Common Charger would be an essential requirement for block radio equipment.

A switch to a standard adapter will affect Apple more than any other company because its iPhones and most of its products are powered by its Lightning cable, while USB-C connectors power Android devices.

Apple said in a statement, “We believe regulation that forces conformity across the type of connector built into all smartphones stifles innovation rather than encouraging it and would harm consumers in Europe and the economy as a whole.”

It said there was no need for regulation since the industry is already shifting to USB-C via a connector or cable assembly.
