Apple may soon ditch charging ports in iPhones

Apple is looking to get rid of all the ports in its future iPhones.

That’s the prediction from a known Apple leaker, who says that after this fall’s iPhone 12, the Cupertino, California, tech giant is going to make the shift to completely wireless phones. At least one iPhone model in 2021 will have a smart connector in place of the device’s traditional lightning port, rendering any accessories that make use of the port effectively obsolete. The smart connector would snap onto the device like a magnet rather than having to slot into it.

The prediction is in line with a previous report from highly regarded Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who previously said he expects the high-end iPhone 13 model to be a completely wireless device. Apple’s forthcoming 2020 iPhone, meanwhile, will keep the lightning port despite the company experimenting with prototypes of the phone with the more widely used USB-C data and charging port.

The next iPhones are rumoured to have 5G hardware, which will allow them to access a network that promises faster internet and quicker response times than LTE. Last month, reports emerged that Apple was delaying the production ramp-up for the new phones as the coronavirus pandemic weakened global consumer demand and threw a wrench into its manufacturing operations across Asia. Apple traditionally needs to send engineers back and forth from its offices to its factories in China to finalize designs in the lead-up to the product’s release. But the coronavirus has led Apple to restrict employee travel to hotbeds of the disease, including China.
