Apple may be forced to abandon its Lightning cable connection

So true - unfortunately having lost the standard headphone jack when they unilaterally decided to screw up everyone's life it's very unlikely that that will return...now it will give iPhone users a chance to buy another dongle!

I think the Apple Lightning connector is dumb. However, do you really want the idiot politicos making more stupid laws?!?!?! Let the market decide. If the Apple connector becomes unusable/unpopular enough, the free market will change it with declining sales/profits. We refer to this as Capitalism. Try it...IT WORKS!!!

Remember your "Nanny" binding posts/banana connector fiasco. Time to ditch the Socialist EU Overlords and get back with the civilized world!!!

The lighting connector is one of the best designed connections ever. Nothing else is even close. It would be a shame to see an unelected bunch of political dictators ruin it for the world.

If you look at Apples latest products they are all USB C for charging, (The lightning connector is dead in the water just like the headphone jack) as do most other manufactures. (Although some still have there own connectors as well)
The EU are basically just legislating for the inevitable. (And wasting a shed load of money and time as usual)

Isn't that Apple's domain... wanting to rule the tech world :)
I guess but doesn't seem that they are having much impact post Jobs. I got the feeling that Google's got the jump on them now and they will become less pertinent as AI & 5g become more invasive.

Lol...
Because melting ice caps are fine as long as we have out mobile phones charged with the right cables.
Not sure what the cables have to do with the polar ice caps or the latest version of climate alarmism. I do think there's a big push to wireless everything. Maybe that will work out like paperless?

Totally agree but why don't you like the lightning connector? My experience has been that It's solid, easy to clean on both sides & the non-Apple versions are really durable (the Apple cables are environmental rubbish). I don't use my phone for audiophile purposes.
