  • Since using the Apple Watch, I’ve been noticing that the so called MagSafe solution would be a good way to go. It’s simple and has a magnet on the back which lets you charge your watch while stuck on the wall, I’d your in to that kind of wallie stuff. If Apple makes the magnets strong enough, the new iPhone would be getting a good update.

  • maybe Apple would add a wireless data transfer that works in sync with their wireless charging, like when you put your phone down on the pad it can transfer data to your computer and charge your phone. that'd be actually epic since I only use wireless charging when at my computer anyways.

  • From an Ex-Android Fanboy: Apple sets trends. Apple does something and everybody follows. That's why I'm kinda leaning away from Android... Its so consistent. Apple removes bezels then every new phone after that has to be bezeless. Apple removes headphone jack now every phone that's midrange or newer has to be Jackless Sure maybe samsung did the whole waterproofing thing but nobody cares about that, apple did it too and that's the only thing that matters. Things like the note is a gimmick, who has a Stylus in the phone? LG? Moto? Does apple have it? No? Then it's fodder. Samsung try as they may, don't have the Trend setting Transformation that Apple has mastered to an Almost terrifying degree, they got their fans to approve of No charger, no headphone jack, no Home screen button all within what? 4 years? Now of course samsung did this too but if samsung would have done it first they would have sinked faster than my will too live in a pool.

  • Their end game is to take away all the "unnecessary things" from the phone and then slowly with each new phone bring those items back and with their savvy marketing state that they solved the problem of the missing charging port, or head phone jack. And on top of that charge you extra each time for adding these "new innovative features" to their newest phone. Finally the iPhone 20 6G "Steve Jobs Edition" for $2500.00 will look and feel identical to the very first iPhone.

  • "When was the last time you used the port on your phone for anything other than charging?" All the people using Carplay, connecting to monitors, backing up their data and installing new iOS through iTunes (no port means you better hope the iOS already on your phone is flawless or else factory resetting will not fix many issues. Apple could implement wifi downloading of a new copy of iOS to mitigate this issue, but what do you do when your iPhone gets stuck in a boot loop, or stuck on the start up screen, or any of the other problems I fixed in mass on a daily basis when I was an Apple Technician.) Now that I work everyday putting wired CarPlay radios into even brand new vehicles, I'm sure all my clients having replace their $500+ radios they just had put in a 2021 vehicle will be useless to them unless they never upgrade their phone or switch to Android Auto (which on many cheaper units, isn't even included, meaning many people would still have to purchase and replace a perfectly good and expensive device just to use the only feature they bought the first one for.) All this so you can take you phone diving with you (bc the average person is doing fine with the current water resistance with a port and will have no use for more,) and so they can stuff an extra half hour or so of battery in there. "YAY! The newest iPhone's battery will last 30 minutes longer! Just don't mention it'll take an hour longer to charge it wirelessly, which will be your only option. Apple is going to try to spin it as completely wireless charging, but we all know that just means you'll have another wire attached to your phone but this time for longer and without the benefit of being able to transfer data.

  • The buttons can be removed, along with the charging port. Although some people use their charging port to either troubleshoot problems with their iPhone. Or charge while they are in bed or in a different position when wireless charging just does not work. For the buttons, however, you can control the volume using software, same with mute, and for locking and unlocking the phone. Tap to wake is there and you could double tap on the homescreen to lock the iPhone.

  • I've always viewed their actions as trying to isolate themselves from the outside market. They always come up with "Improved" and exclusive alternatives to standard features. Next, I think they will come up with an alternative to bluetooth to shut out that market too. Maybe something to do with the airplay technology? Not really sure how all that works though tbh. I haven't sported the apple logo for a few home buttons or so.

  • Why do people keep buying their product... Honestly people.. you do have a option. Androids have charging port, headphone jack, buttons and they even put the charging block in the box.. I heard a sales lady tell a customer the reason for no charging block with her $ 1200.00 Phone was because it's uses the new usb mini that goes in either is that a reason not to be included. O by the way,,, I have been charging my last 2 droids on that very new usb mini...

  • Idk man, other removals were kindof like "Meh". I personally dont think that removing the port is going to fly with the community. Iphone fanboys might adapt it but I am certain android users would riot over it, if they were to follow. There are certain things like you mentioned, connecting to PC or car. I am sure apple users adapt their shitty itunes software and sure, they can sell car wireless adapters but unlike apple products, other phones use general usb FTP which many rely on. Jailbreaking and rooting will also no longer be possible which would turn down a very high percentage of customers. But lets be real here, if apple sold literal shit, fanboys will buy it. Dont forget about the 999$ piece of welded metal they were selling and those idiots still baught it.

  • I don’t think the 13 will be portless yet. I feel like it’s gonna be one of those things that we’ll see in the patents and there will be little indicators in iOS 15 that indicates that it’s coming, but Apple’s gonna end up going one more year with the port. This is going to be the year where Apple unveils the new 120hz display and the in-screen fingerprint sensor, so people will get familiar with it and the technology, since it’s more familiar to consumers. Apple typically doesn’t just throw a completely new iPhone at everyone at once, they build towards it by adding piece by piece carefully every year to slowly bring the consumer along and creating more justifications, then makes the “big move”. The 12 having the MagSafe capability is basically Phase 1, the 13 is going to have the new display + in-screen fingerprint that suggests that eventually the port will “have to go” because of technical maturities in the vicinity of the port with those new features in Phase 2, then portless iPhone in Phase 3.

He definitely need port to the wired headphone or earphone to play games. And what the solution for it. :- if using a solution just like a magnetic connector on the side of the port to the end of the cable of the wired headphone every in a landscape mode we will switching our phone to a landscape mode for play when there is a magnetic the hand will shake when we and it will disconnect Make a video about portless in iPhone

  • I plug in my iPhone 12 everyday using CarPlay ... plugging it in has the added advantage of charging it so it’s always topped off. Also, I fly drones and, you guessed it, plug in my iPhone 12 to the drone controller. I can’t imagine a wireless fix for that that doesn’t compromise the signal or quality. I’m not opposed to losing the charging port but I hope if they do this, they have all this stuff thought out because if they don’t, I for one won’t be upgrading next time.

Where 200 bucks phone makers are making in display finger print sensor with large battery and thinner than iPhone, so are they more innovative than Apple???. Ultimately trust is: Make more money.
