When Will Apple Remove The Charging Port?

              Related image
Apple's all about that wireless technology and its no secret that Apple eventually wants a port-less iPhone. With the death of the headphone jack, Apple has obviously trained its guns on the lightning port. Surely even Apple isn't courageous enough to remove something as basic as the charging port. Right? If this is the first time you've heard about this you might be feeling a sense of dread. Don't worry thats normal. Yes all those memes that said that the next iPhone might not have a charging port were true. The lightning port's days are numbered.

Why This Obsession With Wireless?

Apple believes that wireless is the future ( And it is ) and all their design choices and decisions as a company over the past few years have been to wean us off cables and physical media. Starting with the removal of the CD drive, then with the headphone jack, then with very few ports on the MacBook. Yeah Apple has been hinting at us to switch to wireless for quite some time now and it hasn't been in a subtle manner. In my opinion wireless is better there are less things to break in your phone, You probably get better water resistance and the space saved can be used for a bigger battery or something like that. So in the long run wireless benefits both the OEM and the end user. Just look at the AirPods.

When Might This Happen?

Ah I'm just waiting for the day when the first rumour drops that the new iPhones might not have a charging port and in usual fashion the internet will be in uproar. This isn't likely to happen in 2019 wireless charging on the iPhone is still in its infancy. People are yet to discover the benefits of wireless charging. But that doesn't mean that we're eons away from ditching the charging port. The thing about technology is that, growth is exponential. It took us 10000 years to discover fire another 5000 to discover the wheel another 2000 years to discover the steam engine another 100 years to start flying and just a mere 60 or so years to go from the first plane to landing men on the moon. I know that analogy isn't chronologically accurate but it gives you a sense of how technology progresses. With Apple on the wireless charging bandwagon, wireless charging is about to get a whole lot better for everyone. 
The best example is Pie Charge ( No they haven't sponsored this post in anyway). Pi Charge is a wireless charger that charges your phone from upto a feet away. No pads or precision placing required. The Best thing about it is that it can charge multiple devices at the same time.Image result for pi Charge

This isn't the only "wireless" charger we've seen. Over at this year's CES companies did show off wireless charging technologies that sends power over the Air to multiple devices with a range far greater than that the 1 foot of the Pi Charger. Sure its has it's limitations too but it is sure could power our smartphones in the future. Moreover Apple themselves have  multiple patents to implement true wireless charging.What ever the case I think its a certainty that the charging port doesn't have a lot longer to live.

The HomePod Is About To Be Wildly Popular

The HomePod is finally here, and the reviews are in. I'm sure you've watched umpteen reviews and you all know the basics, It sounds amazing , Siri is dumb (Which is don't think is the case) and that it lacks Spotify and Android integration (You can read why I think thats not going to happen here).
But what stood out to me was the lack of "consumer interest " in the product. The preorders went live and much un-like the iPhone or the AirdPods, the HomePod was available for quite a long time, only selling out on the day before the launch day. For Apple this is really weird, a company that sells out of everything they release instantly.This made me  doubt the demand for the HomePod and I wondered if the critics were right , That maybe people aren't really interested in a $350 smart speaker. But thats not really the case.

AirPods Are A Totally Different Ballgame
Now you might remember back in 2016, when the iPhone 7 came out Apple came out with AirPods and much l…

iOS 11 Was A Dumpster Fire. Whats Next?

So iOS 11 was released back in September of 2017 and it has been a cluster-You know what I mean. iOS 11 has been crippling devices ever since it's release. Its ironic iOS 11 has been iOS's (iOSes?,iOSeses?) most beta tested version to date, and it is the most buggiest iOS release ever. iOS 11 has been said to shorten the battery life of older iPhones by quite a bit. My iPhone 5s really took a hint in the battery department after the iOS 11 update. Performance also took a hit with iOS 11. Why is this so?

iOS 11 Changed A Lot iOS 11 gave users a lot of things that they had been clamouring for. A redesigned control centre , a more productive environment on the iPad so that you can actually get work done on it,  you know the works. But unknown to most of us, I think Apple redesigned the innards of iOS. They really tweaked it at the nuts and bolts level. iOS 11 updates were weird in the sense that they were unusually massive the initial update was a few gigs ( as you'd expect …

No Siri Isn't Holding Back The Homepod

So the homepod was given to Apples favourite media persons the other day and the reviews have started pouring in. One thing is strangely consistent across all these reviews, they all talk about how Siri is holding back the homepod. This really got me scratching my head. Sure Siri might not be able to tell you how much a chipmunk weighs, but really how much do we ask our smart assistants random questions. Lets took at how Siri isn't really holding the homepod back.

Siri Is Already Smart Enough No really you didn't read that wrong Siri is more smarter than you realise, especially after the iOS 11 update. Now Siri can answer all the random questions that you have. If I'm being honest here I'm of the opinion that Siri can go toe to toe with the likes of Google assistant. She can answer any random question that you can throw at her ( this wasn't the case before iOS 11). Moreover context awareness has taken off recently, one off the biggest faults with Siri used to be t…
