It is expected that at least one Apple iPhone 13 model will be launched later this year without the need for a charging port. In order to prepare consumers for the portless iPhone, Apple shipped For iPhone 12 series, the charging brick is not included in the box. It also introduces the MagSafe series of accessories, which connect to compatible iPhones through the use of magnets. One of MagSafe’s products is a charger with a USB-C plug on one end. It is connected with a 20W-USB-C power adapter and can be purchased from the Apple Store (bricks and mortar and online products) for $1
9. The MagSafe charger will charge you $39 or $3.25 per month for 12 months.
Apple is committed to recovering lost files for portless iPhone users
Not opening the phone may improve the waterproof performance, which is already very good on the iPhone 12 Pro series. But if there is no port, how will the affected iPhone 13 users restore and recover their data when a serious problem occurs? Now, users can plug in a lightning cable with a USB-B or USB-C plug on the other end and connect to a computer to recover or recover lost data. In the same situation, Apple Watch users are forced to send the clock back to Apple to find and install the missing data. This service is not free.
Since Apple Watch is an accessory that users can use within a few days, this is not a problem. But for a few days, without a smartphone, many people could not do this, which forced Apple to come up with something new.with According to Appleosophy, Apple devised a method where users can restore and restore data on their portless iPhone without sending the device to Apple. This new feature is called “Internet Recovery”. iPhone users put their device in “Recovery Mode”, which will start the Internet Restore broadcast feature and add the device to iTunes/Finder. Then prompts will appear and the user will follow these prompts to restore/restore his data. According to reports, this is Apple’s first choice. Another option is to let the iPhone automatically enter the “Internet Recovery” mode and issue a prompt for the user to follow.
Apple engineers are also considering using Bluetooth to send files needed by iPhone users. This will start like the recovery method mentioned earlier, but use Bluetooth to update the affected iPhone. But these signals are considered slower, less reliable and unsafe. To use Bluetooth, you also need to synchronize their iPhone with the Bluetooth signal through a PC/Mac and follow the instructions.
Hardware engineers have been trying to establish wireless data access in the iPhone. Apple Watch has a hidden port built into the timepiece area where the strap is connected. When the watch leaves the factory, Apple will use it to restore/restore files. For the iPhone, Apple is said to be considering creating a hidden port on the back of the SIM card slot. The company will ultimately have to decide whether a software solution or a hardware solution is the best choice. Likewise, speed, safety, ease of use and other factors will need to be considered.
According to reports, Apple is testing these “Internet recovery” methods, but the speed has been too slow so far. Only in February, Apple can postpone making some important decisions for this year’s iPhone models. A few years ago, the company finally made a second decision not to include reverse wireless charging in its current model.
The interesting thing about the whole portless iPhone is the timing. Taking the charger out of the box and introducing the MagSafe series are all prerequisites. When you look at it this way, Apple’s chances of portless movement this year are better than you expected.
