Last week, many followed the visit of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan. After that, China protested, and former US President Donald Trump said that the conflict over Taiwan could result in World War III.
Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan further strained China-Taiwan relations. As a result, the Chinese Communist Party developed new regulations prohibiting any mention of “Taiwan” or “Republic of China” in shipping documents. This means that some of the electronics, and possibly all of the equipment, could be returned back to Taiwan, causing the launch of the iPhone 14 to be delayed.
What’s worse for Apple is that the Pegatron vice chairman and TSMC executives were spotted with Nancy Pelosi during her visit to Taiwan. This could be the start of a more bitter trade war between the Chinese Communist Party and Taiwan that has involved Apple and other US companies.
Apple is already in talks with its Taiwanese partners, asking for all “Made in Taiwan” or “Republic of China” labels to be removed or replaced. In addition, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s sources claim that some of the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 will be produced at Foxconn’s Indian plant. Apple for the first time seriously diversifies its production.
Recall that the presentation of the iPhone 14 is expected in September this year.
By the fall of 2024, the iPhone will definitely switch to USB-C. Otherwise, Apple will not be able to sell its phones in Europe.
Today, the European Parliament passed a law on the introduction of a universal charging port. According to him, from the fall of 2024, USB Type-C will become the standard port for charging smartphones, tablets, e-readers, keyboards, computer mice, GPS devices, digital cameras, headphones, headsets and in-ear headphones, portable game consoles and speakers sold in EU. Starting in 2026, USB Type-C will also become the standard laptop charging port.
The law was passed by an overwhelming majority of 602 in favor, 13 against and 8 abstentions.
“This simple solution will save thousands of tons of electronic waste every year, make it easier to reuse old electronics, [повышать] convenience for consumers, reduce unnecessary costs”, said Maltese MEP Alex Agius Saliba. He also added that he hopes that the EU decision will become an example for the rest of the world. European Commission Executive Vice President Margrethe Vestager said the move to USB-C also has financial benefits: “this will save at least 250 million euros per year“.
