Apple to remove the charging port from iPhones in 2021

There have been plenty of rumours around the next generation of iPhone. The most surprising update is that the next generation iPhone may not have any charging port on it at all.

Charging ports on the smartphones have evolved over the last few years. Apple has made several changes to the charging port of its devices. The company recently moved to USB-C on the iPad Pro. Apple has changed the charging port on MacBook several times. For iPhone, Apple might ditch the Lightning port this year. It was assumed that Apple will bring USB-C on the 2021 iPhone; however, the new rumour suggests that Apple is packing a completely wireless experience in the 2021 iPhone.

The tech firm is trying to drop the charging ports altogether and offer rich wireless charging experience. This also means that charging and data transfer both would be done wirelessly. An analyst from 9to5Mac expects that Apple will remove the charging port only from the high-end model of the iPhone. Those who want the device with a charging port can buy the lower model of the iPhone.

Apple might release five different iPhone models in 2020 The basic iPhone SE 2 will be launched early next year, which will come with 4.7-inch of display. The other four iPhones with OLED display will feature one with a 5.4-inch display, two with 6.1-inch displays, and the fourth with a 6.7-inch display. The iPhone SE 2 Plus will have an all-screen design.
