Apple does the PREDICTABLE....Will k*ll OFF the CHARGING port by 2021
 

 

Apple is k*lling the charging plug on its highest-end phones by 2021, top analyst predicts


KEY POINTS

- Apple will launch an iPhone in 2021 that doesn’t include a Lightning connector, according to Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst at TF Securities.

-The company would only remove the Lightning port from the highest-end iPhone, creating a “completely wireless experience,” Kuo wrote in a note to clients on Thursday.

-Speculation has been building for several years that Apple plans to remove the Lightning connector in favor of other charging technology.

Apple could ditch the Lightning connector on the highest-end versions of the iPhone in 2021, meaning the devices will require wireless charging, according to a report on Thursday from Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst at TF Securities.


The removal of the Lightning cable, along with other differentiating updates, will boost shipments and the average selling price of the high-end iPhone models, Kuo, a top Apple analyst, wrote. Without the connector, the top-tier iPhone would provide a “completely wireless experience,” Kuo said.

Speculation has been building for several years that Apple plans to remove the Lightning cable. As far back as 2017, Kuo predicted that Apple would discard the Lightning connector in favor of the USB Type-C connector, which is widely used across the industry.

However, Apple has continued to include Lightning ports in the latest iPhone models. Apple’s new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max models, which were announced in September, all have Lightning ports.

Apple has started to include the USB-C connector in some products. The new iPhones support Apple’s fast charger, which promises to deliver up to a 50% charge in 30 minutes. The charger uses USB-C and requires iPhone users to buy a specific cable that goes from the Lightning connector to USB-C ports.

How much will people be willing to put up with?


Wireless charging is cool, but mandatory?

How will people use their phones while charging? That is the only downside to wireless charging

I find it highly doubtful since they canceled their wireless charger. But then again Apple is run by a bunch of idiots, so wouldnt doubt it.

No that's not what I mean.

Apple gets money on every single "lightning" accessory sold. So that means Apple makes money anything that fits into that port for the iPhone.



That's easy money. They're not just gonna eliminate that revenue stream because some analyst thinks so.

Come on now... iCloud's security is fu*king trash. 90% of those hacked celebrity accounts where from iCloud.

If somebody wants your info, they can get it if you're sloppy with your passwords. They don't need your phone or any ports.

I can’t see it going away completely, I just a*sume they’ll phase the lightning ports out in favor of USB-C.

I think iPhones and Magic Mouse are the only ones still using it and it’s inferior to the Type-C.

And then when they break your phone, you go to Apple to get it fixed and they get the money anyway.

Everybody knows somebody who SWEARS their phone battery just got worse on its own when in reality they were using sh*tty gas station iPhone cables from China
