The iPhone of the future, no charging port

Some time ago, Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known analyst, said on social media that the iPhone 15 is likely to adopt a "non-porous design".

The so-called non-porous refers to canceling all the physical buttons on the iPhone and turning them into touch buttons. In order to make it have a more realistic feel, it will also add corresponding vibration feedback, which is similar to the touch Home button of iPhone 7 and iPhone 8.

This news did not cause much waves for users, but it made the domestic technology media boil.

After all, in the eyes of the media, every "big change" made by Apple is a major event that can change the mobile phone circle. However, if it is true that the iPhone 15 really uses touch volume and lock screen keys, as the news broke, it also means that the physical mute switch that has been retained since the first generation will also disappear, or exist in another form.

It's a pity, but I personally like this feature very much. With this matter, I would like to talk to you about Apple's "non-porous" idea today. Apple canceled the headphone jack in the early days and replaced it with AirPods, including the subsequent sales of AirPods and the enhanced waterproof performance of mobile phones, etc., which can be said to be a very successful case of "removing the hole".

We won’t talk much about functions such as touch volume keys, which are already mature technologies. Today, we will mainly talk about the charging part. On the iPhone 12 series, Apple brought something new and old: Magsafe magnetic charging, by adding a circle of magnets to wireless charging, changed the new wireless charging method of iPhone series products and became a backup option for mobile phone charging.

MagSafe has advantages and disadvantages. Let's talk about the advantages first. First of all, the wireless magnetic suction method can make the mobile phone's card position more accurate during wireless charging, and avoid the problem that the charging coil cannot be aligned and affect the charging efficiency. In addition, the use of magnetic attraction can make wireless charging have the experience of wired charging.

Of course, the logic of this realization is somewhat superfluous. But in fact, it can solve the problem that consumers can also use it in their hands during wireless charging, and it can also avoid the situation where the phone is dragged by touching the charging line.

We won’t list other advantages one by one, such as Magsafe magnetic charging, magnetic wallet, magnetic mobile phone holder and a series of magnetic accessories, these are its advantages. As for the shortcomings, friends who have used this product will have experience. Although the official statement is that the iPhone 12 series and above (excluding mini) can have a charging power of 15W, but in fact, if it gets hot, the power will be reduced to 7.5W~5W. At that time, don’t even mention whether it can be charged. , it is lucky not to lose power. Source: from the Internet
