Apple to Launch 'Completely Wireless' iPhone Without Lightning Connector in 2021 [Report]

Apple is planning to launch a 'completely wireless' iPhone in 2021 that doesn't have a Lightning connector, according to a new report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

The "highest-end model" in the lineup will offer a "completely wireless experience," says Kuo.

Apple will create more differentiation between the highest-end and high- end models. It will benefit the shipment of the highest-end model and ‌iPhone‌ ASP. Among new 2H21 ‌iPhone‌ models, we expect that the highest-end model would cancel the [Lightning] port and provide the completely wireless experience.

Presumably, a wireless iPhone would need to support much faster wireless charging. Current devices support wireless charging at a max of about 7.5W compared to around 18W for fast charging via the Lightning port.

Apple keeps adding small meaningless feature in order to jack up the price smh. I see iPhone hitting the $2K mark in the future.

They shouldn’t take away any charging port until they’ve integrated solar charging

They have to think of something to add to a new sales pitch So are they going to sell us wireless pads or include them for free with the phone
