# ** iPhone in the next few years will look like the old “brick” Nokia design, all because of a new regulation? ** **iPhone equipped with removable battery is unprecedented since its release. eye. But with the rules recently adopted by the European Union (EU), Apple is likely to have to do this if it does not want to lose market share in Europe.** Mid-June 2023, a report has been published. reports that the European Parliament (EP) has voted to enact legislation forcing manufacturers of battery-powered devices, including smartphones – to supply easily replaceable batteries. . This week, the European Council (EC) has officially issued this new regulation. The only step left is for the Council and the European Parliament to sign the confirmation. By then, every manufacturer that wants to sell phones in the EU must sell phones with removable, easily replaceable batteries by 2027. According to Neowin, the rules are part of the EU’s latest effort to aim reduce e-waste load and promote easy repairability. Currently, most smartphones have a monolithic design that makes it difficult or impossible for consumers to replace themselves. The moment when the battery starts to degrade, users are forced to bring the device to a repair shop or choose to upgrade the smartphone. The EU’s new removable battery regulations will make it easier for consumers to extend the life of their smartphones by replacing the batteries. The new rules will apply to all smartphones sold in the EU, regardless of where they are manufactured. This means that not only Apple, but other OEMs like Samsung must comply with the new regulations. For many people, this is good news because they can easily replace iPhone batteries like Nokia phones of the past. However, the huge impact of this law on the iPhone is not so simple. The iPhone has never had an easily replaceable battery before, because Apple meticulously planned the iPhone’s internal design to make the most of the available space. Those design optimizations allow the company to use as much space as possible for the battery. In addition, Apple designed the iPhone to be optimally resistant to dust and water. It’s likely Apple will seek to meet strict EU laws on battery replacement, but the company will likely pass those research and development costs on to consumers. At the moment, users will not see any change. However, in the next few years, smartphones will have a different design as manufacturers begin to comply with this new law.
