The Apple Watch Ultra 2, Apple Watch Series 9, and the iPhone 15 series have all been formally unveiled. Having said that, the largest change will likely have an impact on many potential customers since Apple is retiring the Lightning connector it debuted with the iPhone 5 in 2012. The projected replacement is USB-C. A USB-C Apple watch charger cable will enable you to charge your watch using the battery in your iPhone, as would be expected given that USB-C can also transport power, audio, and video. However, this isn’t something that we can expect from Apple for the iPhone 15 series.
In other words, we can state that Apple itself has paved the way for its competitors to bash them for this change. This makes everyone wonder what made the firm bring this major change to their smartphones, as the charger was a big change between Android and iPhones. It is said that Apple is initiating this change starting in 2024, as all smartphones sold in the European Union must comply with the USB-C standard chargers. So this can’t be said to be an upgrade; it can be termed a change. The way Apple announced the adjustment didn’t exactly meet with the approval of tech giants, especially its rival manufacturers.
Samsung bashed Apple by its comment in the X/Twitter division for both their way of presentation and USB-C incorporation, stating, “At least we can C one change that’s magical ” and “This one REALLY could have used “one more thing”. Not only does the South Korean giant have a number of websites that specialize in covering technology, but reviewers have also criticized Apple for this.
