I can't believe such a stupid article was seriously posted on a "tech" website by a "tech news editor"?
The website lost their credibility with this, big time.
For anyone confused:
1. First of all, the recent laws about USB-C are a challenge for apple's iPhone manufacturing because of the port on the phone, not the port on the adaptor
. This article deliberately confuses between the two to make the dumbest point, especially for such a well-known website!
2. Apple already uses cables with USB-C-to-Lightening cables like the others, meaning this news editor's "struggle" would have been the same with any other phone including an iPhone.
3. Not that this is even relevant to the title, but the "8 dollar adaptor" she says she has to use is so DUMB. Usb-A to usb-C cables are more common than the flu
. The whole world knows that USB-A to USB-C cables are the norm. This is also the case for Apple who, again, also switched to using usb-c ports on the adaptor's end and stopped using the more common USB-A on the adaptor's end.
4. This literally has nothing to do with the Lightening port system, the one affected by the new policies. It's like she's been living under a rock, or at least pretending to be dumb so she could write this, and clearly nobody proofread it. A tech news editor??? Really???
