USB Everywhere

September 15, 2021

Two good USB-related events this month:

  • EU plans to force all device manufacturers to adopt USB-C.
  • USB accessories will soon have a special markings, making it easy to figure out their capabilities.

It’s sad that Apple provoked more regulations, other market participants seem to converge on USB-C voluntarily. Anyway, this regulation is good for iPhone users and for the environment. I think it’s mostly a failure of antitrust regulations though.
