I think the KEY to apple port-less iPhone is AirPower. Not the dock connecter or USB-C.. That's why I think it was discontinued (couldn't get the communication between iPhone and computer worked out along with power).. (Transfer power and data over Airpower) ideal. What's your thoughts?

I don’t understand why they can’t just create a beveled edge thats a bit bigger than needed, so it forced you to put things in your spot. I’d honestly just purchase this just so my chargers dont wear out and to build the habit of putting my phone in a specific spot when im not using it

But why do they need to power all the coils at once why not that particular coil where the device is laying by automatically detecting the position of the device. This way at any given time they have to power only 3 coils at once if all three devices are charging and not all of the coils. Weird.

Air power tailed because apple doesnt know how to make shit. This is what happens when apple tries to make their own hardware and do it in house. Give the plans to Samsung and they will build it for them....just like they are doing with almost all their other hardware.

Coming from the future, Mac Pro will not be canceled & MKBHD will be enjoying his sweet MacPro! On the side note Airpower is going to be revived again.

I'd rather have them not ship something if it won't work. Apples behest mistake in this whole ordeal was announcing something that was "beta".

Apparently the iPhone 12 is gonna be completely wireless and there's rumors that Apple just been working on the AirPower these past 2 or 3 years and re-release it for 2020 for iPhone 12.

Hi from 2020. They didn't cancel the Mac Pro. They finally announced it. And you bought one. And I'm jealous because your build is worth my salary for 1.5 years.

Wireless charging just doesn't make sense to me. The tech is a step forward but the practicality is three steps back it seems. Can anyone tell me what the deal is?

If I would ever wanted a better charger, I would instead change that connector which can be damaged with daily use with something like magnetic connector which you can unplug easily. Wireless charging is very very inefficient and useless unless you are having your phone charged while you move around room, Which is not possible.
