When will the iPhone Ditch Lightning?

Report Summary:

The EU is mandating that all vendors will be required to support USB Type-C 
for charging smartphones and other personal electronics from 2024. The new 
legislation is good news for consumers who have typically had to deal with 
multiple different charging systems and nests of cables to power up their 
devices. What does this mean for Apple (and other vendors that don’t currently 
support USB Type-C)? Will consumers outside of the European Union also 
benefit from the legislation?
