Apple Speaks Out Against European Plans to Force Universal Charger Standard for Smartphones

Apple is speaking out against EU plans to force tech companies to adopt a universal charger standard for all smartphones and other electronics, reports the Financial Times.
The company argues that doing so would hamper innovation, hurt millions of customers, and create an 'unprecedented volume' of waste.
“We believe regulation that forces conformity across the type of connector built into all smartphones stifles innovation rather than encouraging it, and would harm consumers in Europe and the economy as a whole,” Apple said. “We hope the Commission will continue to seek a solution that does not restrict the industry’s ability to innovate and bring exciting new technology to customers.”
