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)
