Everything Wrong With Lightning Cables | Untangled

  • Dipublikasikan tanggal 29 Jun 2019
  • Apple has used the Lightning connector for seven years. It used to be on everything but now it's only found on two types of devices. iPhones like the iPhone XS and iPhone XR, and lower-end iPads like the iPad Air. The lightning cable Apple includes with the iPhone XS doesn't support fast charging and transfers data at USB 2.0 speeds.
    In order to get fast charging you need to buy the 30w USB-C power adapter. Apple uses USB-C on the iPad Pro and the MacBook Pro. Switching the iPhone to USB-C would unify Apple's products. But it doesn't look like that will happen any time soon.

    the worst is when the lightning cable that came in the freakin box starts giving you the "this accessory may not be supported" when it clearly worked the day before when connecting the same two devices

      It's kinda the opposite:

      Android: *has shitty face recognition feature that doesn't work in dark enviroments and can be hacked easily*
      Android fanboys: *wOw iNnOvAtIoN*

      Apple: *releases polished Face ID feature that uses advanced 3D sensors and stores your data in a Secure Enclave*

    The REAL problem with lightning: their design is flawed, and every lightning cable FAILS from corrosion of pin 4 within 6 months if you live in humid areas. Anyone who lives in Texas knows what I’m talking about.

    I brought my iPad to school for notes, my friend steals it I had a case on it but he took it off so I didn’t look like mine. I came back saying “is that yours?” Right when I say it this retard with butter fingers let my iPad Pro 2018 slide on concrete. There were scratches on the corners and on the back and a little scratch on my iPads camera. I told him to pay my iPad repairs. 5 months later I don’t get sht. And stays away from me everyday. I called his parents and they ACTUALLY pay me back. Then my friend had to pay back his parents. Now I bring my iPad Pro on important days for college.

      Funny how Android tablets were rushed, lazy copies of the iPad that just stretched mobile apps instead of being optimized for them, and yet Android fanboys praised them just because the pricetag was lower. You get what you pay for.
      By that logic, computers aren't needed anymore because they're just "bigger phones that don't make calls" so the billions of people that use them are idiots.
      And FYI, the iPad isn't "just a bigger iphone". It's got a powerful A12X Bionic chip that can run video editing apps and even Photoshop. Everything has its demographic and just because you have insecurities about the type of glass and metal slab other people are using, doesn't mean you have to dismiss innovation.

    I like lightning. MicroUSB was garbage. Always failed. Not reversible. I haven’t tried USB C yet but it doesn’t look as robust as lightning. I’ll be real disappointed if it’s also a fragile connection. And ya. No need to be faster. Most work is done wirelessly anyway. USB C is a solution without a problem.

    My experience with lightning connectors is that the connector head wears out the iPhone female part that you stick the lightning head into. And dust and water make the female end of the lighting connection rendered useless. 2019 I switched to Android Samsung J7 2018, and I will have to see if the USB connector lasts longer than Apple lighting connection ? I've owned an iPhone 3gS, 4, 4s, 6sPlus, and finally iPhone X before I switched to Android Samsung. I love my Samsung Android way better than iPhone and iOS.

    I like the Lightning plug (just the plug, I'm not talking about transfer rates etc.). It feels more stable and reliable than USB-C. In regard to connecting an iPhone to a current Mac, people that care about fast charging already have USB-C to Lightning cables anyway. Though I think, in the long run, everything will be USB-C at some point.
