As per a Reuters story, the EU will be presenting a legislative proposal that would force manufacturers to use a common charging standard by the middle of 2024 and while all smartphone makers use the USB-C charging standard, Apple has its own charging standard. This proposal would put the iPhone maker in a fix.

While Apple has USB-C ports on some hardware, Lightning is the standard on its iPhones and reports suggest Apple is going to opt for an port-less iPhone in the future. Apple had argued against the common charging standard saying it stifles innovation.
