Apple said Thursday against the European Union's plan to introduce a universal charger, writes Reuters news agency . According to Apple, the plan would stagnate innovation and generate a lot of electronic waste.

Last week, it called on the European Parliament for a universal charger that is suitable for all smartphones, tablets, e-readers and other portable technology. According to the EU, the introduction of a universal charger would reduce electronic waste, reduce costs and improve the safety of chargers.

The introduction of a universal charger would mean that many Apple products could no longer be used for Apple. While Android phones have a regular USB-C input, most Apple products have a Lightning connection.

Apple told the BBC on Thursday that the company has supplied more than a billion devices with a Lightning input. Mandatory stopping would therefore lead to an "unparalleled amount of electronic waste".

According to Apple, a universal charger is not necessary, because "the technology is already moving towards USB-C, whether or not via reducers".

The European Commission will publish a study at the end of January or early February on the impact of introducing a universal charger.
