IMO, they need to start building iOS laptops and desktops. Why this hasn't happenned blows my mind.Also, if they start supplying iOS laptops, their product offering is going to be super confusing and both OS'es start cannibalizing their products.
The moment Apple brings an iOS laptop is the moment I will (sadly) switch to Windows, because it would be a signal that they're killing of MacOS, which I think is far, far superior to iOS on desktop, for many reasons.
It's so childish to label people with complaints as 'crybabies'. Their arguments are valid.
Apple is forcing us to invest in wireless. This 'bold move' is being compared to the removal of the floppy drive in the iMacs back then. It's not a fair comparison because the removal of the drive didn't force people to invest in a propriety Apple format (lighting cable, W1 chip, etc, for third parties all subject to Apple's review process and expensive licensing fees).
The iMacs alternative was USB, external CD-ROM player and floppy drive. That seemed fair.
I personally hate the removal of the jack because I need a reliable wired connection for all my daily team calls, and I need to be able to charge my phone while doing so. And I sure as hell don't need another Apple accessory that requires charging.
And we all know that Bellina dongle sucks balls.
Apple didn't provide a second lighting port, or included the W1 chip while keeping the jack. Their move isn't 'bold', it's arrogant and unneeded. They're creating a way to earn more money from third party accessory creators and iUsers at the same time.
