Tim Apple will not be a happy bunny today.

They’ll just completely remove wired charging and force all iPhone users to buy MagSafe xD

Then the only holes left in the phone will be the speakers. So the speakers will be the next to go and you will be forced to buy Airpods for around.

Funnily enough I can see Apple trying to push that narrative and people still buying into it.

I don't know about India but the EU law (the one that passed that mandated type C) says that a device not using wires to charge has to use aj open standard (such as Qi).

So good luck to them, they'll still have to comply with the rest of the world.

iPhones still support Qi charging…

That's good then. No problems if they switch to only wireless charging.

Yeah there's a big fucking problem. It makes charging on the go a pain in the ass

Not saying it's a smart idea (I personally would never buy a wireless only phone). I'm saying there won't be any compatibility issues with competing products.

Haven’t read the full order for India, but yes, the EU does have a solid track record of being thorough.

Nothing would please me more to be able to have one standard for all charging needs be it wired or wireless.

MagSafe works with any Qi charger. The MagSafe is essentially Qi with a magnet to ensure that the wireless charger is aligned properly for optimal (charging) power.
