Insert card, hit OK, enter PIN, done. Doesn't really take any more time than signing.
I don’t understand all this blather about connectors to Apple devices. Apple makes well considered decisions on the type of cable to use on each device. I am sure that they spend lots of time discussing the pros and cons of each connector type.
We trust Apple on making many more significant design decisions about the device so why not trust them on the connector decisions.
Since it was unveiled, I have wondered about the utility of wireless charging in the home especially if you have an Apple Watch or an iPad Pro in addition to your iPhone.
For me, the solution is the Anker wired charger with one USB-C output for my iPad Pro and four lightning outputs for my iPhone and the Apple watch puck.
Outside the home in a coffee place, placing your iPhone on a mat without wires is fine but for home use, wireless charging is unnecessary. That is my opinion but I would be interested in seeing comments on this subject.

I don't get it. People are honestly critical of the 4 TB3 ports!! I would rather rather have the functionality and bandwidth of TB3 than an old USB-A or DVI port. TB3 is more than worth having to purchase an inexpensive adapter.
I was actually impressed by the new machines. OLED still isn't mainstream and I like the touchbar. Discrete graphics in the higher end machine is a plus
