iPhone that may never need to be recharged!
There is another rumor going on that Apple may be incorporating Solar batteries.
Apple could be planning to embed solar cells beneath its touchscreens, according to a new patent.
The firm was recently granted a US patent for solar panel technology hidden beneath touch-sensitive surfaces, like those used in a Macbook trackpad, iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch display.
According to the patent filing, the hidden solar panel would recharge the device throughout the day.
This could be significant for the iPhone lovers!
No Headphone Jack for iPhone 7
It seems that iPhone 7 – the latest one from Apple – is rumored to be jettisoning the 3.5mm headphones jack! It was a code embedded in iOS 9.3 beta code that started the rumor.
Code buried within the latest beta for iOS 9.3 – “Headphones.have.%sinput.NO” – points to how the iPhone could handle audio signals without a dedicated headphone port.
It doesn’t confirm the rumour, but it does show Apple is at least investigating the possibility.
There is already a movement of people who want Apple to reconsider this change.
