For better or worse, Apple is a unique company in the world in its ability to get the most powerful processors in the world for its Macs and iPhones and then make mistakes like they’ve done before. place on the iPhone. Do you want to know what they are? Read on and we’ll tell you everything.
Tortoise Speed USB-C
It is estimated that Apple has finally integrated the standard USB-C port in its iPhone because when it comes to storage, it is the only device on the market that did not have it, namely the type of connection. What’s most surprising is that Apple was one of them the first companies in the world to support this type of technology because they built it into the MacBook Pro 2016. However, they have always been very cautious about the iPhone.
Now the worst comes when we analyze this USB-C compatibility and the speed of each of them. Specifically, the iPhone 15 Pro features third-generation USB-C with up to 20 times faster transfers, while the standard series has similar transfer speeds to Lightning.
But wait, because we have something even worse, as the USB-C cable for faster transfers is available separately and at a price of 79 euros. Had Apple lowered prices? No, Apple changed the price, but if you buy the cable they actually increase it.
Because of this, I had minimal hope that Apple would improve the standard iPhone 15’s panel dynamic island inclusion. However, it’s my fault for thinking Apple would improve this panel and keep it at 60Hz for another year, but no, Apple assumes an $856 phone will have the same refresh rate as it did three years ago .
However, this is a detail that many people in the industry fail to see or appreciate You are using an iPhone or a device with a higher refresh rate, I assure you it is visible. It’s like True Tone, it’s never there, but when you remove it it’s clearly noticeable.
Apple gives no reason for this to reduce the refresh rate of this iPhone segment and that is not because it would break the price scale, as there are mid-range devices that have very high refresh rates. Apple isn’t adding it because they don’t feel like it.
Lack of content
Of course there will be some readers who don’t understand it or are against it, but they Climate change It is real and the consequences of uncontrolled pollution in major countries are getting worse. Since the time of Steve Jobs, Apple has always been one of the companies that cares most about the environment. However, dedicating a third of the iPhone 15 presentation to talking about the importance of the environment and the fact that its devices are made without carbon emissions shows that Apple didn’t have much to offer in this keynote.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but Producing a zero-emission device in 2023 is virtually impossible especially because the moment you have to transport components or simply transport millions of units by ship, you create terrible pollution.
