It feels Apple has an internal communication problem…. where one division doesn’t *quite* understand what the other is doing.
The first clue was doing away headphone jack; it makes complete sense to do so if they also rolled out wireless charging. But they didn’t. The wireless charging technology wasn’t ready for primetime. No bother — just ship the concept half baked.
Now, we have a lightning port in a USB-C world …. because the iPhone battery team doesn’t quite know that the MacBook team already shipped the future.
