Joanna Stern Interviews Federighi and Joz at WSJ Tech Live

The bit that’s getting all the attention is Joz’s “Obviously we’ll have to comply” remark about EU regulations mandating a USB-C port on phones starting at the end of 2024. I encourage you to make time to watch the whole interview — it’s really good, and it’s only 35 minutes long. But if you only watch one bit, watch Joz’s two-minute answer to that question. It’s far more nuanced than just “Obviously we’ll have to comply.”

(Also worth enjoying Federighi’s subtle chuckle at the question, because he knows answering that one is Joz’s problem.)

Update: Now available on YouTube, too.
