EU warns Apple: Don’t limit USB-C charging on new iPhones

In response to this concern, the EU has issued a warning to Apple, urging the company not to impose such restrictions. EU Industry Commissioner Thierry Breton reportedly conveyed to Apple that iPhones would not be allowed to be sold in member countries, including France, Germany, and Spain, if the company attempted to bypass the EU’s new USB-C charging policy.

Die Zeit, a German newspaper, reported that Breton stated in a letter to Apple, “Devices that do not meet the requirements for the uniform charger are not approved on the EU market.” This communication follows an earlier reminder to Apple about the new rules in March.
