The EU proposal would force Apple to make iPhones with user removable batteries

A draft european UNI law to force Apple to make iPhones with user removable batteries, that is to say, the batteries, the user can quickly and easily swap out when the phe ran out of juice.

This would represent a return to the early days of smartphes, when the owners, usually carry a load of spare battery and simply snap to the back casing and swap the battery when it ran down …

The act would apply to all manufacturers who sell smartphes within the European Uni to 27 countries.

Apple aly resisted a proposal of the EU: for a standard cnector to charge devices. That could make Apple’s proprietary Lightning port illegal. Given the years, it is necessary that these things happen, the probability is that it would be irrelevant.

However, the obligati to allow csumers to easily and quickly replace the batteries would be a big problem. It is not just that the seamless design of the iphe is incompatible with the user removable back, but also a removable lid that would compromise the seal provided by today iphe. In additi, it would result in significant internal design compromises to allow the battery to be achieved without disturbing the other compents. That would inevitably make the smartphes thicker than those of today.

Assuming that the law is finally passed, and he did adopt USB-C as the standard, it will not enter into force immediately. Manufacturers plan new products, sometimes years in advance, so that they must be given a notice period before the act becomes mandatory. This period will be measured in years.

By then, e of two things will have happened in Cupertino. Either Apple will aly have adopted USB-C, just as it has de with the iPad Pro, or it is moved from the positi that we all expect to reach finally: a port-free iPhone, which ly supports the wireless charging. Anyway, a European standard charger will be completely out of the way, at the time when it enters into force.

As with the standard charger, the proposal could take years to be implemented if it was approved, so this is not something that Apple needs to worry about anytime so. But given the potential impact both the purity of its lines to appliances and water-and dust-proofing, it is likely that Apple will not be the ly smartphe manufacturer to object if it is in fact officially proposed.

Assuming that the law is finally passed, and he did adopt USB-C as the standard, it will not enter into force immediately. Manufacturers plan new products, sometimes years in advance, so that they must be given a notice period before the act becomes mandatory. This period will be measured in years.
