Tech News and Commentary
Dave and the team discuss Apple’s announcements, phone carriers and their offers, Walmart still holding in-store Black Friday deals, Google Assistant booking reservations for people, and more.
Michael in Tyler, Texas listens on KTBB 97.5FM and asked: “The iPads, the iPhones, even the Galaxies… the charge ports on those things… for the amount of time you keep thoise and use them – they don’t hold up. I was hoping that maybe they could put some kind of new connectors on there, but that’s probably not gonna happen. Would like your thoughts on that.”
Michael, we hadnt heard complaints about the ports themselves! Lots of people complain about the cables, even though those put up with a lot of abuse, but we hadnt heard complaints about the ports themselves.
You may be in luck though, odds are your phone already has another way to charge that is harder to break: wireless charging.
Youre probably a good candidate for a charging pad that can charge your phone and if you get one (or several) of those you wont ever need to plug anything in, you can just rest your phone on the mat and it will do its thing.
There are versions you can buy for your home, your car, and even some that are part battery packs that you can carry with you in your pocket.
You should never really need to plug in, but if you ever find yourself having to do it at least your port will be brand new and likely to work.
