      I mean, Linkin Park is pretty much one of the most famous bands and In the End has long passed the point of being a well-known song and has become a timeless meme... I think he said that just to provoke us. Or did I just get r/woosh'd?

    I think removing the charging brick was was one of the crappiest moves by apple because everyone followed along. The electronic waste excuse is crap, who is throwing away charging bricks no matter how old they are, they can be used to charge something. I have yet to throw a charging brick away.

    • tygs

      They do all this but if you buy an ipad or a macbook pro you still get the charging brick lmao why is it just for iphones

    • Hydin

      U threw one away because it blew up. In like 2012 that was it.

    • pranav subash
      pranav subash

      Xiaomi's the only company who rly used enviromental waste as a reason to remove the brick, and not an excuse. Cos e-waste is a real problem ,but the soluution is simple : most ppl have chargers and dont need new ones w eveery new phone, so as a defualt, dont give it - BUT, if a user says he/she wants one for whatever reason during checkout, give it for free along with the phone - which is what xiaomi did

    Honestly, I still get very annoyed when I forget to bring my usb-c to headphone jack adapter just so I can listen to music while walking home. Bluetooth devices - especially smaller ones, like earphones - tend to die after a while of use, as is natural, and I honestly miss the no-lag, no-charging, no-fuss thing that aux cables are. The headphone jack is dead! Long live the headphone jack!

      I've started using my MacBook with an external keyboard and wow... it's like a normal computer! It doesn't constantly beep at me because I've accidentally hit one of the touch keys.

  • Michael Hickman

    The touch bar to me was exceptional for all Apple applications. Such as with sliders and icons to make work flow faster. The Zenbook duo did this better, but apple made an attempt that worked and was affective.

      This is the problem with Apple... See, it's great that you like the touch bar. When I first got my MacBook, I liked the touch bar too. But then it became more annoying than useful, so I turned to the system settings to disable it... Nope! Can't be turned off. Because once Apple decides that something is good, they assume that 100% of their users will agree. Apple's arrogance is astonishing.

    I think the touchbar is a cool feature, and have found a great number of times when contextual buttons are available, but I really would have loved both the function row AND some kind of touchbar.

    • Max Prehl
      Max Prehl

      I mean all you have to look at is the market for stream decks, and it's easy to see that contextual/specialized buttons are a good idea. But by removing something else (function keys) which (potentially more) people were already used to using, it just made macboks a net worse product for lots of ppl.

    • Simon Wakefield
      Simon Wakefield

      @SfisoSG That was the mistake Apple made with it imho, while developers should have been able to add their own buttons for their app there should have been a page in the Apple Settings where just like with a stream deck you had full on customisation and perhaps even extensions able to be written for 3rd party integration to other services like with the stream deck. I get use out of the Touch Bar but not half as much as I do from my stream deck even when I've purchased better touch tool to give myself more control (I personally find BTT a little over engineered as well which doesn't help)

      I mean I know some people who loved the touch bar and were really bummed out when apple removed it. I feel they should have given and option. Hope they give us an option on the next MBP. I was in the ballpark that both functional heys or touch are were fine for me.

    • SfisoSG

      I agree but it didn't get the best use from it developers werent doing doing things with it which would made it soo good

  • Jezelf

    I can accept the ports, I have come to accept the lack of a headphone jack, but I will never understand why the iPhone doesn't get cheaper when it comes with LESS stuff in the box, like yes I'm all for environmentally friendly stuff, I don't need that charger, but the fact that Apple is pushing it as a "we're saving the environment" idea and not just a way to increase their margins, it just grinds my gears. EDIT: and before anyone says "Oh well, they're a business" shut up, are we supporting big conglomerates now like they're not the reason our planet is dying, or like most of the population has an interest in a giant company like Apple making more money? At what point does mindless consumerism just stop working, I'm not saying other companies aren't doing the same dishonest politics. Also addressing the cost of development, it's all bs, if you actually knew how this works, you'd understand that on a yearly basis, they're not developing eth from scratch, they're improving an already existing platform, so the cost between one iPhone and another is pretty much the same for apple. and no inflation isn't the reason, check the facts.

      @catboy Actually, the iPhone 12 got $100 more expensive over the 11. To be fair though the 11 was $50 less expensive than the XR and the XR was $50 less expensive than the 8 Plus, so they merely undid the price reductions that they'd made over the span of 3 years.

    • Youtube Kullanıcısı

      @BloxMan "Literally nothing" It was actually one of the biggest changes that the midrange premium segment iPhone has had in a long while. It got an OLED screen that's way brighter, with way better HDR content representation, crisper, and way more efficient, and a new design (which is what most people look for when they hear about a new phone, frankly). So, the upgrades were on perhaps two of the most important aspects of a smartphone, which is the screen, and battery life, not to mention 5G and a way better modem in general. And trust me, there are tons of other small quality of life improvements that I'm not bothering to mention here.

    • Youtube Kullanıcısı
      Youtube Kullanıcısı

      @Orlando Velasquez What you're repeating from tons of other tech reviewers on ITmores is actually quite misleading. Chances are, people who already have existing charging bricks do have the cable for them as well. Apple included the USB-C to Lightning cable because it's more modern, and capable of faster charging so when you go out and buy a fast charging adapter (which most iPhone customers likely don't already have) you don't have to buy a USB-C cable for it as well. Shame that they didn't put USB-C on the iPhone too, I agree with that.

    • Youtube Kullanıcısı
      Youtube Kullanıcısı

      Uhh, the iPhone did get cheaper actually. The iPhone X launched in 2017 at $999, and the iPhone 13 Pro with double the storage and way better performance and feature still sells for $999, which is technically cheaper when adjusted for inflation. I'm bringing up inflation here not as a reason, because the price didn't increase despite popular belief. It's like when people are asked "Is the world going in a positive or negative direction" and 98% of people say "negative", even though compared to, say, 200 years ago pretty much everything has gone in a positive direction, be it literacy rate, wealth rate, number of healthy years of aging, etc. throughout the world, and humanity is at its best, most peaceful age ever right now. So I very much prefer to focus on the positive aspects on this matter too.

    • catboy

      Also your argument is flawed, so Apple should just stop paying all of its software/hardware designers, engineers, developers, etc. just because they’re not developing anything from scratch? You know how idiotic that sounds?

  • First Name Last Name

    The headphone jack is way better than any Bluetooth solution. Having to go through and pair your Bluetooth every time you want to use it on a different device is super inconvenient vs just unpluging and plugging it in. When I found out you could sync Xbox 360 controllers via the cable it made bringing them to a friend's house so much easier. I'm glad the switch also supports this.

      @Diverting Tales but why would i wanna buy dirty ass usb c headphones for 10 bucks if i have perfectly working ones with a hp jack thats been here since decades? Just because some manufacturers refuse to put a refined and working port inside their phone like they did for a long time? No chance. About that apple argument: not everyone uses apple. And dont start with: just buy an adapter duh. Cuz first, i dont think you understood the problem if you say that and second, i would be forced to spend money for something i shouldnt need wich creates another point of failure in a link that could be avoided if the people responsible would design stuff with customers in mind. And dont get me even started on the situation that i wanna listen to music while charging my phone. Dont get me wrong wireless headphones are convenient. But they are only as good as long as their battery worls. When that dies its gonna be another ewaste problem. Dont really have that battery problem with cabled headphones and if you look after em they will last forever Also the market for usb c headphones is way smaller then the market for hp jack headphones, more variety, its not like the usb c port gives me any advantages over the hp jack. Its been there since forever, it works and its cheap. Companies bein greedy aholes and removing it is a move i will not support even if i have to go through the extra mile of buying phones with a hp jack from different brands

    • Diverting Tales
      Diverting Tales

      @Anua Anua why are we acting as if usb c headphones don’t exist and are readily available and Apple even shipped them with the phone for a few years? The reason people are using wireless is not because of force at this point as you can get usb c headphones for 10 bucks.

    • Anua Anua
      Anua Anua

      @Tech thats also where batteries inside the airpods and the case come in wich you have to make sure are charged and wich will die in a few years, creating even more waste. and since these things are literally throwaway products its not like apple or anyone for that matter is doing anyone a favor. dont get me wrong true wireless hp are super convenient but forcing them on people with the removal of the hp jack is just a dirty move. apple could have announced them and the magic pairing seperately, offering it as a side option all good but now lighting headphones or lightning to hp jack adapters had to be made wich will likely be obsolete in a few years when apple either has to switch to usb c or is gonna remove the charging port altogether. lots of waste could have been avoided with just keepin that stupid jack imo

      @Marijn Luijten Until the BIG companies can figure out how to eliminate the lag while using Bluetooth, maybe. Why would I need to purchase a dongle just so I can use a wireless mouse?

    • Marijn Luijten
      Marijn Luijten

      I disagree about the USB. The rest of the world had more than enough time to move to the better USB-C. If other companies decide they want to cut costs by using an 20 year old standard like USB-A on new products, then they are at fault. If you really want to use that 10 year old thumb drive instead of buying a new one, you can use an adapter. I'm very happy Apple tried to push USB-C (Except for the iPhone). It's just sad the rest of the world didn't catch on fast enough.

    "The headphone jack was needed to die" I do acknowledge the convenience of wireless headphones but you are gonna miss the headphone jack anytime you are out in public, your headphones die and you realize that you can't just plug them in to listen to music.

    • superfragilisticatexpialidoshmur

      You have a pair of wireless earbuds, they die, you put them in the case, the case offers multiple extra charges, you forget to charge them, that's kinda on you. It's inconvenient, but so is potentially getting the wire caught on anything you walk by, so is a fraying or shorting cable that only works if held in a certain position. For over ear headphones, not charging them is just a bad habit, their battery is long enough to get through a day for the most part, and then you plug them in when you get home.

    One great thing about the Touch Bar for me has been the video controls. Sometimes the controls on the main screen will act wonky or not respond depending on the site but using the Touch Bar almost always works.

  • Hamza Sultan

    This entire video has a bias problem: Just because every other brand copies the idea and society becomes OK with it doesn't make it a good idea or the right call. The other brands copy it because it saves money, they have an incentive to do so. Removing the jack forced a lot of people to get into wireless headphones since it's the next best thing for convenience since not every device you carry around will support audio over USB or lightning but most devices have Bluetooth. A lot of people still buy phones with headphone jacks for the simple reason that they can find a pair of headphones anywhere they go. Apple isn't some magical company that knows what the future is heading towards. They are forcing the entire industry to go where they can make all the profit, then let the rest of the industry have their turn.

      @superfragilisticatexpialidoshmur Apple has a big influence, sure, but what Apple has traditionally been doing is that they wait for a technology to mature before they implement it, and then put a hefty price tag on it by justifying its advancements over the years while forcing every Apple device owner to adapt- which isn't always a good thing. They don't do it to help shape the technological landscape, rather, they do it because they recognize their influence over the tech industry so they try to introduce calculated alternatives to give themselves extra profit.

    • superfragilisticatexpialidoshmur

      ​@Hamza Sultan yeah, yeah, all hearsay, of course, it's illogical to say that Apple brought a product out of obscurity and pushed the technology forward, it makes no sense that one large company started a chain reaction in development from other companies sooner than they would have otherwise...

    • Hamza Sultan
      Hamza Sultan

      @superfragilisticatexpialidoshmur Sure man. It's all hearsay. Just say you love Apple. I'm done here. It works for you so that's good. Tale a different opinion or just scroll past. No one is forcing you to stop using them.

    • superfragilisticatexpialidoshmur

      @Hamza Sultan People who buy pairs of headphones to use once or twice and then give them away? Sure, lot more people that do that instead of just bringing a pair to use. AirPods pair fine with non iOS devices. They work best with iOS, but it's still Bluetooth. I use AirPods more often with my Windows laptop than I do with my phone, and they pair the same, I take them out, they connect automatically. I can't see the battery as easily, sure, but they will tell me when they need to be charged. At the time when there wasn't much of an alternative, oh well, but now with every other pair that you could get, there's something that works better for different use cases. Still having the headphone jack, wired headphones would still be more common, no one would be trying to develop an accessory for the market share that Apple holds, prices would not have started being so competitive so soon. True wireless earbud prices when AirPods were released seem to have been $200 to $300, prices began to trickle down after that to be a better deal because a company as large as Apple had entered an unsaturated market. When AirPods were released, what other options did you have that you could go to a store and buy? $160 was a bit much for a new product, but without that start, both with removing the headphone jack and announcing AirPods, what brands would be competing for the share of the market that isn't willing to spend that price; until another company similar to Apple entered the market with an accessory to their main device, there wouldn't be any brands competing to provide less expensive alternatives.

    The touchbar was an awesome idea, there was just no good reason for it to replace the function keys. Why they refused to have both on the same machine, I'll never understand

      For real they honestly could have had half height function keys with the Touch Bar right above it on the new MacBook pros.

    3D Touch is the one thing apple has killed that is truly a loss for users. it was a great feature that added so much functionality on the iPhone and Watch, if they take it out of the MacBooks I’ll be truly devastated

      From what I saw the people complaining said they wanted their f-keys back so couldn't they have an f-key row and a touch bar?

  • Johny1220

    The competition always follows Apple man lol, I just wish they never got rid of 3D Touch, I loved that feature so much :((

  • JessicaFEREM

    Even if you never used your headphone jack, you could use it for things like square or something like an IR immitter And having a way to plug in a mic if you're using a camera is super handy. The only thing that removing the jack did was force me to buy dongle and dongle for the dongles. One of the worst decisions.

    There's no real reason to remove a headphone jack, water sealing doesn't have anything to do with that. If that were the case, you wouldn't have an USB port to charge your device either.

    I mean most of the video does seem well thought out and put together. The part that truly got me was the removal of headphone jack and the justifications behind it. I mean waterproofing and more complex components ? Not enough space ? Just go take a look at sony and well even lg was doing fine until a while ago. They even managed to squeeze in a proper dac/amp in the same chassis. Which technically had the same components as any other phone without the headphone jack. It's a poor example to say that the headphone jack had to go coz of other reasons. It's just one thing and that's about making more money for Apple.

      @Kite591 Thanks 👍 and have a great day too

    • Kite591

      @Wisdom Yaw Sensitive much? You clearly don't understand what I was saying as you are still doubling down on your point that the test is standard (which only part of it is). Thanks for proving my point and the "insult" at the end. I hope the rest of your day goes well.

    • Wisdom Yaw
      Wisdom Yaw

      @Kite591 Thanks for insulting me at the end 🙏. No need to go further. Maybe you should also read my first reply to deduce what I was trying to say. You resorted to insult just be cause I said the test is standard(as if it's not) so thank you.

    • Kite591

      @Wisdom Yaw Clearly you didn't read what I posted. Yes the test is standard to receive the IP rating, but when you get to IPX8 the tests done for depth and duration as stated in my previous comment are set and advertised by the manufacturer and may include additional factors such as temperature fluctuations and flow rates, depending on equipment type. The standard IP rating test for water resistance of 8 just means that it exceeded the requirements for IPX7. Unlike IPX7 there is no depth or time requirements other than exceeding the requirements for IPX7 once you get to an IPX8 rating. Should really take the 30 seconds to do some research before looking foolish.

    • Wisdom Yaw
      Wisdom Yaw

      @Kite591 ip rating is a standard test done to determine dust and water resistance of devices. So the test is the same for every phone

    Lowering the headphone jack size to the 20yr old 1.5mm size rather than the normal 3.5mm and then use a mini 1.5-3.5 adaptor would of and still is a far better option than removal!

  • TurquoiseTNT

    I Think That The Touch Bar Was Good Becuase Then (If Apple Allowed It) Developers could make there apps use custom buttons with custom icons. physical buttons can NOT do that.

    I absolutely loved the Touch Bar! I used it every single day! I also had ZERO issues with them dropping the charger. I have plenty, both at home and work.

    • GameBreaker

      @Fares Djebbar You posted this twice, but yes your right, just because one has plenty doesn't mean others do, but like another commenter said, if you have like 3-4 extra chargers around that your not using and are just long term storage at that point, then Apple should let you rebate them in a store for like Apple crediting or something towards a new one and use those materials towards lowering the pricing on brand new chargers. Sort of how they handle iPhones which is you give your old one in, which lowers the cost of purchasing since it reduces their need to go find materials elsewhere to use on some of the iPhones being made or maintained.

    Hey, I kind of like the touchbar. It's growing on me... now that it's been removed LOL As for the notch, I kind of don't think I would mind it that much. People make such a big deal out of silly things like these. The notch, admittedly looks a lot more obnoxiously annoying, but I feel like I'd just start ignoring it.

  • simplybod

    Apple thank you... for making your Mac Pro so has help to drop them and go all PC in my small print company....I'm a much happier bunny now

  • FinalFan7

    I like the way Apple just stays in their own lane mostly. They rarely try and say why their devices are better than another companies. They just do what they want. When they talk up a new device. They just talk about how this new product is better then it's predecessor. It makes them more likable for me personally. Also I got the reference... Made me want to go listen to Linkin Park. 👍

  • AbjoReef

    Coming from a windows user the notch is actually cool, the touchbar is a really good idea and a shame they didn't put it in the 14/16inch macs

    My issue with apple getting rid of the included charging brick is, on iPhone 11 they changed from the normal usb A to lightning cable and started going with usb c to lighting, which is much faster. Then the next phone drops a year later and they get rid of the brick arguing everyone has one. Except, they don’t, because you just changed the standard to something better, then only included that brick for a single year. To date, I am still using the two bricks from that gen phone, and I refuse to buy more even though I want more so I can have a charger in every room that isn’t… super slow. So when they removed it… it sucked.

    for me if apple is gonna remove like you know the earphones jack they could have put it on the top of the phone then have a magnet over the whole thing so it would look really clean and if ever they put a finger print unlock like the ipad air they could put it behind the apple emblem or logo or whatever they call it

  • PsiliPharm2012

    Replacing my 2016 MBP with a new M1 Max MBP, not going to miss the crappy keyboard except the TouchBar (if you use creative apps, the support was great), going to hate the notch (on the phone it’s not as noticeable but the Mac OS menu bar can easily have a lot of menus or status icons).

    When the new MBPros were introduced I was thinking that I must have been the only one out there who loved the touchbar so much… It seemed like the wind of technology was blowing us back to the function keys.. It’s not that we cannot work a mac with the original function keys.. But it is step back to the evolution we were used to… Touchbar was really a key feature for most of us… And it is clear now that most of the users want the touchbar back… And I am the one who clearly says… Bring the touchbar back (at least as a BTO choice)….

    The Touch Bar is great on my 21 model and use it when I need It. Great idea. I was expecting a new iPad but I will hold on until the next launch. The thing that I don’t understand is I have a 256 iPad Pro 12 2nd edition and the battery is great. I also own a 256 iPad Pro 3rd edition and the battery is toast. Don’t get it. Took it to the store and all they say is nothing wrong with it. It’s two years old and dead but my 4 year old one is buzzing away. I don’t get apple and I get very confused and with a loss of £1400 on the 3rd gen is frustrating as they won’t help.

    I believe that the notch was there for Face ID, but they had difficulty getting everything to work. The reason the notch was still there was that they probably already had a crap load of them made, when they finally realized that Face ID was not going to make it before launch date.
