    Finally!! There goes Apple's profit margin through extortion from one accessory at least, more importantly no need to carry charger to a dinner party assuming host may not have it..

    Your dinner parties require different things than mine.

    Also, caveat lector:
    > That said, the rules only apply to devices that charge via a wired cable and not those that only charge wirelessly.

    Will phones still have ports in 2024? This sounds like BluRay vs HD-DVD

    If you posted on geo in 2014 that Apple will remove the headphone jack from their phones in 2016, you would have been called nuts.

    Its based on stereotypical assumption that dinner gathering with phone meaning people stooped into phones rather than actual interaction like lots of locals in Starbucks, there are many other reasons phone is useful while playing games, capturing dance videos for memory, funny photos/videos for next day laughter, playing music on bluetooth speakers and video chatting long distance friends and so on.. Strict no phone policy for dinner gathering sounds pretty outdated and first sign of boring conversationalist type party..

    I guess most of us possess enough life skills to either bring a phone which sufficient charge to dinner parties, or be able to survive a few hours without one.

    It’s a good move by the EU though. Shame it took so very long but at least they got there.

    But Apple would have called you "courageous"
