Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is back, this time with a bold statement about an iPhone that is nearly two years away. According to the generally applicable Kuo, at least one variant of the iPhone 2021 will have no ports at all.
While most of us have assumed that Apple would eventually switch to USB-C, this no longer seems to be the case. According to Kuo, the iPhone 2021 will provide "a completely wireless experience" (via 9to50Mac ). Kuo expects the charging port to be removed from the flagship first. Of course, power users are the people who enjoy removing features.
We've long speculated about a port-free iPhone, but given the popularity of USB-C and its products, it did not think it would arrive so quickly. Prominent use on Apple tablets and laptops. It would seem that Jony Ive was one of those proponents if he dreamed of an iPhone that looked like a single pane of glass, but we're not sure how his design ideals have affected him since he left the company get advice from his new design company.
We are not sure what that would do in practice. While wireless charging may be convenient, it's virtually useless in its current form if you really want to use the phone while charging. Maybe the company has some kind of grab handle, or it thinks its new phone has enough batteries so it just needs to be charged overnight. Or maybe he has figured out how to remotely transfer wireless power ̵
Kuo has also updated its prediction for other upcoming Apple devices. He still believes that by early 2020, a new iPhone SE 2 in the form of a 4.7-inch iPhone 8 with better internals will hit the market.
Later in the year, Apple will release four phones, including two 6.1-inch models, a 6.7-inch cell phone model and a new, smaller 5.4-inch model. When the rumors come up, it's nice to see that the company tends to make smaller than larger cell phones. The two lower models will continue to have two cameras, while the upper models will have three cameras and an additional flight time sensor for depth detection purposes.
In addition, Kuo assumes that Apple will release an iPhone SE 2 Plus in 2021 with a 5.5-inch or 6.1-inch display. It sounds like the company has a few busy years ahead of it.
