If Apple Kills the Port …

by birtanpublished on September 26, 2020

There's a growing sense that Apple is gonna be removing the Lightning port off of their iPhones in two years time to make an iPhone that is completely no ports it'll be entirely dependent on wireless everything wireless charging wireless connectivity and I can't say

I'm surprised but at the same time it's it's strange like they would be moving from lightning ports that they've had on their iPhones for six seven years and then moving to a completely port list of ice they'd be skipping UCC completely

And I feel like there's a really interesting conversation around this topic so Apple has this weird or amazing or bizarre track record of being able to sell or market a an idea that people don't think that they want into

Something that gets adopted by the industry and consumers to the point where becomes this desirable feature so as an example like their computers back in the day they launched the MacBook Air and they launched this laptop that did

Not have an optical drive and at the time people were like this is crazy you're selling a laptop that doesn't have a CD drive like who wants that years later that's what everyone wants and same with us PC ports on their Mac

Books there was a ton of pushback when they launched with that thing and it's been slower to adopt but a lot of laptop manufacturers are now making these use PC port only devices but the biggest and just craziest example of Apple's ability

To do this was their courageous removal of the headphone jack when they first announced the iPhone 7 people were up in arms about the disappearance of that port because the headphone jack is such a integral part of their smartphone

Experience if you want to listen to music take a caller just plug up your headphones and you're good to go and they remove it so people were upset companies were making fun of them there were ads or mocking the disappearance of

This port but two years later look where we are now every single smartphone manufacturer their flagship phones has now removed the headphone jack and I don't know if it's because Apple's really good at marketing stuff or if

Just companies realize that you can make some extra money if you remove this port and make no mistake about it every phone company that have removed their headphone jacks from their phones is now selling you some wireless earbuds

Alongside like Apple has their air pods Samsung has our galaxy buds oneplus the wireless bullets and also their new upcoming wireless earbuds that were leaked so I wouldn't be surprised if at this point every phone company's like

Thankful to Apple for having opened this door for extra revenue know the concept of a fully wireless port 'less iPhone is not new back in 2017 there were rumors that even the iPhone 10 was slated to be a wireless phone with no port but it

Seems like wireless charging techni for them at the times the accident and came with regular lightning ports on their phones but I don't think that the user experience for iPhones would really change all that much if these phones

Became Wireless like these phones have access to airdrop they have good wireless charging and even iOS developers have had access to wireless app development for a while since 2017 I think it does however change apples

Revenue like now they're able to sell wireless stuff accessories wireless dongles wireless things to connect to other devices that don't have wireless capabilities it's extra revenue for them and there's this there's this idea that

If Apple does this and somehow the revenue streams are nice for a wireless port 'less iPhone what's to stop Android from copying the same way that they copied the removal of the headphone jack in pursuit of extra revenue and this is

My issue with this for Android phones half the reason why I like my Android phone so much is because of their ability to connect to my computer with a USB C cable like being able to transfer files to and from my phone is something

I really value and I feel like a lot of Android users are in that same boat now there's probably some advantages to a port list phone like it might make waterproofing easier and might make the design aesthetic a little cleaner in

Theory there's more room in there so you can have a bigger battery but that's the argument they were using with the headphone jack and there's probably not much merit to that I don't know we've seen how powerful Apple's decisions can

Be like on the iPhone 7 when they removed that port it was this simple decision that had a huge effect on the entire smartphone industry so what's your take on this like personally I think this is gonna happen I feel like

Apple has been trying to make these port lists wireless phones for a while it all makes sense and like if you're an Apple user are you cool with this but I think the bigger question is do you think this is the

Direction that smartphones are gonna take these portlets devices down the line okay hope you guys enjoyed this video thumbs we liked it subs have you loved it see you guys next time
