It was claimed that Apple will not put a Lightning cable on future iPhone models after a survey.
Apple had the charger out of the box with the iPhone 12. Now, the company aims to remove USB / Lightning cables from new iPhone models. This means that the iPhone 13 lineup, coming in 2021, may provide fewer accessories to customers, and may not be very welcome by users if it happens.
The purpose of the company’s survey was to learn about users’ experiences with iPhone 12 models. A few questions in the survey attract attention. One of the notable questions was about Apple’s unpacking the USB cables with the SIM card removal tool from the iPhone 12. In past surveys, users have been asked how they use their chargers. Following this question comes to mind that the Lightning cable can also be removed from the boxes.
The survey also included questions about Face ID. Users were asked if they were satisfied with the technology. Considering that Face ID is much more convenient than Touch ID, it can be expected that the company will preserve and improve the Face ID feature in future models along with other features. However, the current pandemic conditions seem to have affected this feature as well, because if you are wearing a mask, Face ID does not work and forces you to type your password.
The result that is tried to be removed from the survey may be that with the iPhone 13, users will have fewer accessories and Face ID technology will be improved. In fact, the support of Face ID to recognize masked faces may also apply to the current iPhone 12 models without waiting for the new model. In addition, it is not yet clear what will be the reaction of customers to the absence of charging cables in future iPhone models. However, it seems that with the new iPhone models, users will have to buy external USB cables as well as external chargers.
Finally, let’s point out that all these thoughts are an interpretation of the questions in the survey and that we can be closer to the truth as of 2021.
