No changer in box no buy the only way apple will learn is from criticism and pointing out what apple is doing is taking away freedom of choice and just misbehaving as always people need a easy too use phone right out of the box not a wild goose chase for part's and adapter's
Also a phone without the original changer most people do not understand voltage regulators and will use either the wrong changer but it not work because apple
Or same Chinese knockoff changers will get used that don't follow eu standards and knowing there kinds of sellers they will find a workarounds too make the changers look real and sell them as if they are real
Most people won't know the difference between real & fake changer and it will come down too money for budget iphone buyer's and the changers will bypass the security system so this is a safely issues and oversight that isn't considered
Waste beacuse of chargers...well, when i sell or give my old phone,it goes with the charger. People around me do the same.
So, i don't know how waste from chargers is generated.

I dont know if this sustainablySMART is really Smarr!
Can I advise them something, develop wireless connection more advanced so you can forget the wire and connector.
Anonymous, 31 Jan 2020The problem was they kept the tech for themselves and if they come up with something better th... moreyep. their ports are the best (though the cables themselves suck) but they are too money-minded to share the design as open source.
can't blame them too much too though, as if they do that, the r&d costs would be theirs while their brilliantly designed port would be available for free by companies that never did such research and don't deserve it.

EU definitely has some monetary interest in usb consortium group.

Apple should be ... moreapple's lighting port has a far better design than the poorly thought out usb-c port. there's nothing in the middle of the receiving port to bend/break in apple's port. and that is unlike anything the usb consortium has ever designed.
Nobi, 01 Feb 2020Not really, that's not how stuff works. Go do some basic research about the most used protocol... morenot really. i got some cheapo chinese tab and tried using its charger on another device.
lo & behold, touch screen response issues.
the tab itself got touch screen issues when i used a good quality charger.
i generally dislike apple but just look at that image there. all those charging ports have a gap in-between. in the receiving port there is a thin pin in-between. this pin is destined to bend or break. even the new usb-c port has it.
only apple's is solid and there is no pin hanging in-between in the receiving port. everything is neatly positioned around the sides. this is FAR MORE RELIABLE than usb-c which was only a knee-jerk reaction by absolutely corrupt usb consortium to design a reversible cable after apple did it.
if EU wants to adopt a common standad, it should be based on the apple port, not on the badly designed usb-c port.
It would be great to tackle the waste by having a universal adapter and cable, however, brands such as Huawei have a higher wattage plug to charge their phones faster via SuperCharge. I hope this will be the new standard.

Just look up how the voting there works and what problems are tackled there. It's a circus, not a proper government.

What you described already exists. The heads of government of all the member states make up the EU Council.
EU Council, EU Parliament, EU Commission. They're the 3 parts of the EU 'government'. Also, dispensing with the EU Parliament would be profoundly undemocratic and mean that the people had no direct representation.

I think Gsmarena should hold a referendum.

Go do some basic research about the most used protocols in fast charging tech i.e USB PD, Adaptive Fast Charging, Turbocharge, Qualcomm Quick Charge, Warp Charge & VooC Flash Charge. You'd be surprised to find a common thread among the all
Hahahaha s2pid Apple! They need to get to Type-C whether they like it or not. Apple should be innovating like being the first to use USB 4.0.
