So the iPhones are obviously the only phones with the lightning connector. But since accessory makers can license the connector and are allowed to build devices with male and female lightning connectors, would it be possible for another phone maker to actually build and sell a phone with the lightning connector? The reason I ask is, starting in 2017, the EU wants to set new rules, that every smartphone has to come with a unified (possibly USB) connector for charging. And if Apple would allow others to adopt lightning, maybe this could become the "unified connector". Would like to hear your opinions on that.
