Apple may have to abandon Lightning connector cable
Apple could be forced to abandon its Lightning connector cable if European lawmakers get their way. The cable is used to charge and sync Apple devices, including the iPhone. Apple products do not accept the other two non-wireless types of charger which are available - USB-C and micro-USB, which work on Android devices. If the regulator enforces its proposed regulation, Apple devices sold in Europe would be required to have a new charging method. Some analysts are even predicting that Apple could scrap its charging ports altogether by releasing future iPhone and iPad models that rely solely on wireless charging.
