Apple's marketing chief Greg Joswiak confirmed that the company will have to comply with a European Union law that mandates electronic devices have a common charging standard — known as USB-C.

On Monday, EU ministers gave the final approval to the common charger law. According to the new legislation, electronic devices including mobile phones and tablets will need to support USB-C charging by 2024. This comes after the EU legislative bodies voted in favor of the law which has been around 10 years in the making.

Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, did not mention when Apple would introduce USB-C to its flagship smartphone but it would need to happen by 2024.

EU lawmakers argue the rules will reduce wastage as consumers do not need to buy a new charger every time they purchase a device. The EU said that this will reduce production and the disposal of new chargers.
