5 Ways the US Lawsuit Could Make Your iPhone Experience More CONSUMER-FRIENDLY!

Hello there! 😊 If you’re an iPhone user, we’ve got some exciting news for you. The U.S. has recently filed a lawsuit against Apple, and this could mean some significant changes to your iPhone experience. But don’t worry, these changes are all set to make your iPhone more consumer-friendly. Let’s dive into the details, shall we? 👍

1. Charging Cables

Remember the days when you had to carry around different chargers for different devices? Well, those days might be over soon. Apple’s switch to USB-C chargers– the standard for Android-based devices – is a game-changer. This change was prompted by an EU law passed in 2022, making the charging port the compulsory standard across the 27-nation bloc by the end of 2024. This means you can power up your devices using chargers you already own, or even borrow chargers from others. How convenient is that? 😍

2. App Store

The App Store has been the go-to place for iPhone users to download applications. But did you know that new rules in Europe have created alternatives to Apple’s App Store? Yes, you heard it right! You can now download applications from rival sources, including websites and rival app stores. This allows developers to avoid the tech giant’s 30% commission fee which, in theory, could mean apps becoming cheaper. Once fully implemented, users should also enjoy access to a wider range of apps. Sounds amazing, right? 🎉

3. Payments Using Non-Apple Websites

In both the EU and the U.S., app developers can now direct users to their own websites to buy items. This is a significant shift from the previous requirement of having to use Apple’s in-app purchasing system, which also takes a 30% cut. This change was made in the EU in line with the recently enacted Digital Markets Act. In the U.S., Apple’s hand was forced following a lawsuit from Fortnite-maker Epic Games. This means more savings for you, the consumer. Isn’t that great? 👏

4. Browsers

Safari has been the default browser on iPhones since the device was first released in 2007. But thanks to changes introduced in Europe to comply with the EU digital markets law, iPhone users will now be automatically given the choice to switch when opening Safari in the latest Apple software update, iOS 17.4. So, if you’ve been wanting to switch to a competitor like Google Chrome or Opera, now’s your chance! 😊


These changes are just the tip of the iceberg. The U.S. lawsuit against Apple aims to increase competition for the iPhone and give a leg up to smaller companies whose apps work with the ubiquitous device. While Apple argues that the lawsuit threatens the company and the principles that set its products apart in a competitive market, it’s clear that consumers stand to benefit from these changes. So, are you ready for a more consumer-friendly iPhone experience? We sure are! 🎉

Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting development. Until then, happy iPhone-ing! 😂
