    Why is Mag Safe called wireless? Doesn't the charger itself still have a cord that plugs into the wall outlet? And the phone still needs to touch the charger which is essentially a wire with a circular piece on the end. And I'm just not seeing how this method is easier than pushing a cable into a hole in the phone.

    • Derek Ow
      Derek Ow

      Well that’s actually a really good question. The answer to which is, we have no freaking clue. But then again, I doubt we’ve reach a point where our devices are capable of transferring power from one source to another efficiently without a single cable in play.

    • Casual Fan
      Casual Fan

      Technically no wire is used to connect the phone to the charger thats why but i get your point.

    After using it for quite awhile, just not too keen on the battery life. Otherwise, performance is great.

    I feel like making a portless iPhone wouldn't be that environmentally friendly as they project themselves to be, since everyone will be throwing away their chargers.

    When I got my 11 pro max I put on a $1 screen protector, and a $5 clear case. I went to the beach the other day and took both them off, and as I thought, phone looks brand new. (Don’t worry I bought a new screen protector and used the same case)

    I'm using a Samsung s20fe and after 6 months of active use, I have no scratches or even slowdowns. Are current iphones still so brittle today? Durability is a big issue for me

      I have had an iPhone 12 for months now. I haven’t gotten any scratches, but some people I know have gotten broken screen. It really depends on how well you take care of the phone.

    I’m upgrading to this phone from my 8+ so I’m sure this is going to be a huge difference for me. Just the other day my 8+ started having issues with the home button

    buy a flagship, and then save $15 every week. you will be able to buy a new flagship after 1.5 years (you dont have to, but now you have the ability to buy one).

    • A

      @O.G.H yes this also works

    • O.G.H

      Or get a last years flagship from Samsung, use it for 4-5 years easily, then replace it with current last years model. Save a shitton of money while still having up to date smartphones. Its that simple

    Hopefully they don’t remove ports. My phone is constantly plugged into my car for CarPlay. If there was a reliable wireless CarPlay adapter I would be game for that

    • Sinister悪魔

      How can you transfer data without a cable though? Wireless transfer takes ages.

    Before you buy an I phone do yourself a favor and read the complaints. Especially for 12.

  • Rxonmymind

    While I appreciate wireless charging some people will need an extra charge bank which is the disadvantage of portless phones. This type of "improvement" won't work for some.

    Bro I could name 100 things wrong with apple removing the charging port. What if your friend hasn’t upgraded and you need to charge your phone but they don’t have a wireless charger. Your screwed. And it’s not like your gonna carry around a charger with you. And if I have a thick case to protect my phone from drops then I can’t use the wireless charger I’d have to remove my case whenever I want to charge it. This is just a few reasons why this is a bad idea. If apple removes the charging port then their gonna lose many customers. Bad decisions are happening at apple

    • Paul Benish
      Paul Benish

      Yeah. It wouldn’t be good. You’d have to carry a MagSafe around everywhere. I prefer a quick charger over the convenience of a wireless charge

      It's called magnet paper, and it revals the position of the magnets behind the glass or almost any other material

  • Rebel_Man_24

    I got my iPhone 12 Pro yesterday and I’m glad apple went back to the boxy design found on the 4/4S, 5/5S and SE 1st generation (which is not a new design) because it’s easier for me to hold than the iPhone 6 through iphone 11 rounded sides

  • Annes

    I have lost all respect for these phone companies. Each year they strip more and more features and it's ridiculous. They are literally regressing in their design.
