According to Canalys, the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer, Apple, with a market share of 20 percent, is on the verge of a critical decision due to the requirement that all models sold in EU countries, which will come into force very soon, have a USB-C port. While the company is expected to give up the lightning port with the iPhone 14 series, a claim has been made a while ago that may attract the reaction of users.
Does Apple work on iPhone without charging port?
As it is known, Apple has used the lightning charging port on all its smartphones since the iPhone 5. The port, which offered a quality charging experience to users at first, started to lag behind in matters such as charging and data transfer speed after a certain time, causing a reaction from users.
We can say that the USB-C port lies behind the focus of criticism due to Apple not giving up on the current charging port. The charging port, which is frequently used in today’s smartphones, meets the needs of users in charging and efficiency transfer speeds.
The European Union (EU) has recently started the countdown to implement a common charging port project for many products, including smartphones, tablets and headphones, in order to prevent technological waste. In this context, Apple will have to give up the lightning charging port used in iPhones in its products and adapt to the common charging standard.
However, according to the latest information, Apple is preparing to make it a standard by removing the charging input from iPhone models, contrary to the common charging standard, which is expected to be USB-C, by further developing the wireless charging technology it currently uses.
Allegedly, Apple CEO Tim Cook will start producing iPhone models without a charging port in the future, due to the high cost of the USB-C port, the existing charging ports taking up too much space, and the company’s reaching a certain level in wireless charging.
