The European Union has warned Apple against limiting the functionality of uncertified USB-C cables for iPhones, according to a report by German newspaper Die Zeit.

Last year, the EU passed a law requiring devices with wired charging to be equipped with a USB-C port to be sold in the region, and Apple has until December 2024 to comply.

It was rumored earlier this year that Apple may limit the charging speeds and other functionality of non-certified USB-C cables, but the EU has made it clear that such a move would not be allowed and would prevent iPhones from being sold in the EU.

Apple could still include an authentication chip in the USB-C port on iPhone 15 models later this year to comply with the law. Since the iPhone 16 models are scheduled to debut in September 2024, even those gadgets would be available before the law takes effect.
