There is a fair amount of conversation out there regarding battery health and wireless charging. It's true that wireless saves possible wear and tear on the port, but I've read several stories about permanent battery health issues. I noted below that my family picked up 4 iPhone 12's last year (we got them 1/2 off, and we all needed upgrades).  I have a daughter who is wireless, and I have a daughter who is "plugged in".   A few weeks ago, we looked at the remaining max capacity on the batteries.  The wireless one was at 86%.   The wired one was at 95%.  They both use their phones a lot more than I do...and I would say similar to each other.  If I had to guess...the wired one uses her phone a bit more. 

I'm almost always plugged in, and my max capacity is 98% after one year. The few times I used the wireless disk (because it was there), I noted a bit of heat in the back of the phone.  I can't believe that's a good thing.



I suspect there's also the cycling... I know the batteries aren't supposed to have a "memory" or require a deep discharge or whatever they call it, but wired, I tend to run my battery down to under 10% before I get too nervous. But if you have the wireless puck and are in the habit of storing the phone on it every night, you might be charging it from 80% and never getting down to 0% very often/ever.

The old chargers work just as before, just not for "fast charging."


"As part of our efforts to reach our environmental goals, iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini do not include a power adapter or EarPods. Included in the box is a USB‑C to Lightning Cable that supports fast charging and is compatible with USB‑C power adapters and computer ports.
We encourage you to re‑use your current USB‑A to Lightning cables, power adapters, and headphones, which are compatible with these iPhone models. But if you need any new Apple power adapters or headphones, they are available for purchase."

So P just got a new iPhone 13. It came with only a tiny power cord, which we noticed had a terminal on one end that neither of us had ever seen before. So, I google a bit and determine that the 13 requires a 20v charger instead of the previous 5v requirement. So, off to Amazon to order one. What sort of skinflint company doesn't include with their device a means of keeping it operating. Cheap, greedy bastids.

You don't get to 3 Trillion in valuation by giving away things.

Their argument is that most people have more chargers now than they know what to do with...especially if they are on their 3rd or 4th iPhone.  The same thing happened with the 12 last year.  In our house, everyone was carrying iPhone 7's...but the chargers worked.  I had an android, but the number of old iPads we've had provided extra charging plugs. 

I like getting a new charger with a $1,000+ device, but they aren't really wrong about people having too many of them.

My 7 Plus does a fairly kinda sorta decent job I guess  - but I've noticed a weird anomaly: Take a still photo and then look at it and it moves slightly. As if it captured a half a second of motion. Have you come across this on any of your iphone experiences? I mean, what the hay?
 

That's a "Live" photo. You can swipe up and make an animated loop out of it, or edit it in the Photos editor and choose a different frame as the primary. You can also turn off "Live" to save space.

Is that the Ken Burns' effect? I think that's one possible mode of a photo shot that the iPhone offers. Ken Burns uses it with photo stills in his documentaries, hence the name.

really not sure what "nsa approved" means. if android meets that standard, iphones surely must as well.

my mom and i got locked out of our icloud accounts on separate occasions. apple's tech support was v. helpful and helped us restore access but yes, icloud's design created a race condition when we changed our passwords.

our problems never should have happened however. feel yore pain. i think that issue has been fixed. cross fingers. 

hope you love the phone. next time you talk to an Apple employee at an Apple store about your phone, see if they ask your permission to hold/touch your phone before doing so. they were trained to do so in the past, probably still are.

I think you'll enjoy the fact that your phone will get iOS updates for years. The Android ecosystem from what I gather is still so fragmented that most phones can use one or two major Android updates and then are deemed to old for further updates.

And yes, Apple customer service in Apple Stores and over the phone is pretty damned great.

But yes, Apple could have lower prices.
