    my pov : the idea of removing the lighting port will be very controversial to anyone almost , but people will forget about the ports by time , so it's a great idea , also about the 10:09 question , i don't think it will be a reason for the buttonless iphone to freeze .

    Not that crazy, if done right portless could make sense. Though it might be kind of pseudo portless. Like if they used something like magsafe for charging that could make sense. I don't necessarily like going full wireless charging just yet. But I mean who knows?

    Would be better if they used the old kind if MagSafe still with contacts but is flushed with the frame. They'll save space this way, and still have a cable for faster charging/data transfer.

  • Gamesetgaming

    The only way I would switch to a port less phone is if the wireless charging is faster than the physical charger

    iPhone 26 no battery only powered by a human sacrifice

  • TheSlavCat

    Honestly I wouldn’t be very much opposed to it because the first thing on every phone, apple or not, I’ve ever had to stop working is the charging port, or maybe it won’t stop completely working but it will start to get touchy and hard to charge.

  • 0RIG1N

    Guys get ready for a battery less iphone allowing for a 30x better GRAPHICS chip in it. Then you just need to buy this wireless power tower and carry that around

    I'm a Note 20 Ultra user. Had all Notes since the beginning. I can't use wireless earbuds...they give me a headache. So when Samsung copied and got rid of my beloved headphone plan was to stay with the Note 8...until I ran out of space...lololol. I have adapters so I can use my wired headset. So if Apple gets rid of that port and Samsung copies it...I will ride my Note 20 Ultra until the wheels fall off, then suck it up and look for a lesser phone with a port. Enough is enough with this getting rid of what I like.

    Waiting for the day you pay apple to download iphone to your own cyborg self and pay 1k for the code lolz I think wireless have gotten to a place where we don’t need a cable anymore but then apple is definitely gonna charge you for iCloud storage and make it impossible to not have the monthly subscription. Thats where majority of businesses are headed, monthly subs.

  • Anthony Sciabarrasi

    yeah but wireless isn’t actually wireless u still need a cord so unless they release a stand alone thing is just a pad that sticks on using magsafe and u can charge the pad separately then it’s gonna be just an annoyance

    Should have just put the touch id at the back if the phone But if they are going to remove the port maybe a bigger battery would be so nice

    thanks for the insight! very interesting. I dont think they will really get rid of the lightning port, because they are going to loose customers like me. I am a radio journalist and need the port to connect a high end microphone. Wireless microphones are a no go. the setup and control (not time to test) make us choose cable solutions. I also need the port for an adapter to transfer the audio files on a thumbdrive. (yes it works) I cannot mail the files because in some regions (west-sahara) there is no internet, or it costs like 20$ per mb, and i have for example a 60MB audiofile. I thought of switching when the audio port disapeared, it did cost me a lot of money, when i finally had to get a new phone without a jack. (adapters etc...) if there is no more port, i will get another phone brand, and maybe even be able to use my old equipment i still have, and that still works great. Luc but really thanks for the explanations.. very very interesting

    Just a question for thought if they do go with full wireless charging doesn't that mean no more rings or pop-sockets on the back of the iPhone since it would cover the charging spot? I know alot of people are getting really attached to having those on their devices

  • Bee Locke

    unless they can make a magsafe puck with some form of data transfer ports on it that then wireless goes through the back of the phone there is just no way I could get an iphone without a port. You can't expect the rest of the world to catch up and be completely wireless just because apple wants their product to be wireless

  • mebombu

    My car doesnt have Bluetooth, so when I bought my new iPhone I spent almost $100 and bought multiple cable and Bluetooth adapters to fit my aux jack in my car. All that came in the mail. So the “environmental savings” that apple claims they’re saving the world with I singlehandedly have reversed many many times over because of their stupid design choice. I imagine it will be the same if they remove the charging port.

    I plug in my phone to my car every single day, to charge, for car play, the audio quality is better than it is through bluetooth. Im still sour that theyve taken away the audio jack on all flagship phones because its really annoying having to set up bt for every time i enter a new car if i want to play music, and you cant pass around the audio jack with friends to play music anymore

    I'm not an apple user here but for a change I want to try the iphone. I'm not in favor in no charging port because I know everyone of us still love to use wired headphones esp when they used it during webinars. They can still upgrade using bluetooth without changing the port charger. No wonder many of apple user before turn now to android phones because aside from budget friendly it's very convinient. The only ugly thing in android it's very easy to caught viruses becoz of lack of Protection and Security. Overall android phones are good to use nowadays.


    They need to get you used to not having a wire charger so they stopped shipping it with the phone - we’ve already accepted that wireless chargers are something you buy separate so they’re just using this as a way to get more money

    I recently switched to the IPhone 12 from a Samsung Galaxy, I wish I never did that this phone Sucks. I have no clue how apple user’s are clueless how better other phone companies are. I’m soooo limited with what I can do with this glass brick. P.S last IPhone I had before this one was the IPhone 4, that was some device.

  • Steruset

    I think removing the port is ridiculous, I was able to stomach using a dongle to keep using wired earbuds but having my only option being to go wireless would really really suck and I'd be considering quitting the apple ecosystem. Like they even realized that the headphone port going away on macbooks was dumb and brought it back later, if they hadn't I wouldn't have bought one. Not everyone wants wireless everything, managing a million batteries sucks, decreases longevity, increases cost. Just overall a lesser experience than my cheap wired earbuds that sound great and last forever, no worrying about battery life, always ready.

    If Apple removes the charging port, people are going crazy like when the headphone jack was removed. Or when they changed the charging port.

  • NikhilChowdary

    If they move portless definitely they should include headphone jack 🙄. Buying AirPods for 249 that's a big deal

    Yes I remember the day they did away with the headphone jack. It was really bad for mobile gamers. We really had to adjust to that change bc bluetooth interfers with mobile games so we couldnt use bluetooth headphones. Even so we had to get the adapter to use headphones which was fine... until your battery ran dead bc you cant charge at the same time. I switched to samsung after they removed the headphones bc its just better audio wise for gamers. Very low latency in the audio.

    But how willd they solve the atrocious charging time with the magsafe. Im not waiting 4 hrs for my phone to be charged. Also, what about charging the phone while mounted on a car mount or camera mount or whatever else? I hate wireless charging with a passion. Id rather buy expensive cables and chargers rather than expensive wireless shit

    I remember when the iphone 7 was released, before that I had an iphone 5c. I can remember the no headphone jack and I still don't like it, when they said that they wanted to have the "courage" to do so I laughed. I actually still have the 7 plus. After 5 to 6 years and watching this video I switched to buy a samsung s20 FE, and with the trade in I get basically half the price of a USED iphone 11 pro max, been with apple my entire life until this year. I Wonder why....
