Apple Could Limit
USB C Support On

Apple could install an IC chip
on the USB C port for iPhone
to limit its compatibility.

This means Apple would
need an MFI (Made for
iPhone) certified cable to
charge the iPhone.

Apple has a solid
tradition of keeping its
ecosystem closed over
the years.

Its stance has changed
recently by adopting USB C
on iPads.

Apple now forced
to support USB C on
iPhones after the new
EU Law was passed.

But with limited support
rumoured, Apple will need
users to buy its own cable
and accessories.

This move could be
scruntinised by EU as the
decision was made to unify
charging for all devices.

Apple is expected to
introduce USB C charging on
the iPhone 15 series in 2023.

Apple says it has to accept
the EU law but might have
to provide the model in
other countries as well.
