Well, it was about time. I think the only way you can make Apple do something (that they don't want to, because it doesn't bring them enough profit), is to force it on them. Good for EU for enforcing this on them.
To tell you the truth, I would have hopped Apple will refuse this and exit the European market, in retaliation. Apple brought only bad ideas in recent years (removing headphone jack, removing charger from box, now removing sim card slot). So, them leaving the European market, would have been really nice. Stay only in US, Apple!

    Apple should have gone straight from their 30 pin connector to USB-C and been one of it's early adopters.

      77, 26 Oct 2022Lightning connectors cost £18 in UK, for that Typc C at 100... moreBecause good USB-C cables totally don't cost the same. Your comparison is totally nonsensical and you keep throwing up the most expensive cable examples. Why would you need a 100W on iPhone when they charge at what, sub 30W ? It seems only bad news for anyone is for you in particular, because you seem to take it super personally for some dumb reason.

          It's milking them out
          No memory expansion available on Mac, but too buy what they offer, ripping out them with no blood left
          And you're supporting the fruit

          Even in every MacAple techsites and forums millions off fans hate dissatisfied beyond, and you're giving credits too the fruit, its beyond unbelievable

            Honestly, the eu doesn't own apple. Plus why don't they ban all laptop non-usbc chargers?

            The eu is just having a big tantrum (same with brazil)

              When apple said "...is coming", it can be a year to go, two years to go, three, four, ... it is because they may search for the unique name for that.

                So they are happy to use it in everything else than iPhone but since EU mandates it it's bad?

                And don't get me started on Apple and ewaste. The company that started the trend with no bricks in package to "reduce" ewaste after they shipped 5W chargers to customers? 😃 Don't forget they still ship the apple sticker with their products creating so much unnecessary waste. And the latest ipad with the dongle is another example of their hypocrisy.

                  rghaleb, 26 Oct 2022Why isn't Apple happy about it though? I get that they... moreA lot of phones still have USB 2.0 data connection even though it's USB-C type.

                    rghaleb, 26 Oct 2022Why isn't Apple happy about it though? I get that they... moreApple gets licensing and testing fees from lighting compatible devices, if they start using usb c they won't get that anymore or at least the number of items that will go through that process will be greatly reduced.

                      they should ship an adapter that turns a lightning cable into a usb c cable. that would solve the e waste thing

                        Why isn't Apple happy about it though? I get that they were "forced" to do it but It's overdue anyway, what is wrong with having a higher spec connector? The lightning is still USB 2.0 which is shameful in a $1,000+ phone in 2022..

                            Wake up. Lightning effing sucks, weak connector galore. Micro usb sucked as well, but usb c is the best so far, so deal with it.

                              Love how they market USB-C as an upgrade on the iPads and the MacBooks, but they're suddenly a liability to upgrade to for the iPhones.
