A recent ruling by the European Parliament seeks to impose stricter rules about how the batteries inside devices like phones, tablets, and other mobile electronics are made and disposed of. The company has a history of making its batteries difficult to replace and has taken flak for hitting users with dubious battery service alerts when trying to repair their own batteries. The ruling would also require companies to more diligently manage battery waste and use recycled components in the creation of new batteries.
