Apple eventually does that too. With the iPhone 13, the lightning charge input is also a thing of the past. Here are all the details on the subject.
Apple, one of the leading names in the smartphone market, is preparing to take another bold step. According to reports from some sources close to the Cupertino-based company, Apple plans to completely cancel the charge input on the new iPhone model.
As will be remembered, a similar move came at the iPhone 7 event about 4 years ago. Apple announced that it removed the 3.5 mm headphone jack from the iPhone models at this event.
At first, this was a bit strange. As a result, those who bought an iPhone had to buy wireless headphones. In fact, 3.5 mm headphones could be used with a converter from the lightning input. But that wasn’t very useful either.
Although this radical decision was criticized at first, other manufacturers started to remove the 3.5 mm headphone jack from their phones.
Can the iPhone 13 without a charge input succeed?
Looking at the rumors now, Apple plans to remove the charging port from the phone. As you know, wireless charging technologies have now developed. In fact, many new cars feature wireless charging stands.
Moreover, it is also possible to buy wireless charging stands for very cheap money. Therefore, this move of Apple will not be wrong.
But there is an important issue as follows. Currently, Apple is not a strong name in wireless charging. So they can wait a little longer for this.
