Everything Wrong With The iPhone


Even though the iPhone was introduced over 11 years ago, there are still some issues with the hardware and software that keep it from being the best it can be. Default apps, proprietary cables, and fast charging are just a few of the problems the iPhone still has. Senior tech reporter Antonio Villas-Boas breaks down a few areas where the iPhone could improve.

Antonio: It’s been 11 years since the very first iPhone has launched and the iPhone has improved tremendously over that time. However, there are a few things that still bother me, that just sort of don’t really make sense.

The cables. Let’s start with the cables. The new iPhones come with Lightning charging cables. Now, the weird thing is, only the iPhone and iPad use the Lightning cable. It doesn’t work with anything else. Whereas, for example, a USB-C cable, that works with a lot of things. And the other weird thing is, the USB cable doesn’t plug into the new MacBook Pros. I have an iPhone and out of the box, I cannot plug it into the new MacBook Pros. To me, this is absolutely nuts. It’s mind-boggling.

Okay, this is an old one by now. The iPhones do not have a headphone jack. To be fair, not all of the Android phones have headphone jacks. Looking at you, Google, and your Pixel 2s. Say you’ve got wired headphones, what do you do? Well, you use the dongle, right? Okay, so, dongle. You lose a dongle, you gotta buy the dongle again. Say you wanted to charge your phone, while also listening to music. Also, not possible right? Unless you’ve got Bluetooth headphones, but if you have wired headphones, you can’t charge your iPhone and listen to music at the same time. You’ve gotta buy another type of dongle, some sort of adapter. And that’s just not a great experience, right?

Let’s talk about fast charging. Finally, wow! It came with the iPhone, finally. The thing is, though, if you want fast charging with the iPhone, you gotta go out and buy more stuff. You gotta buy a whole new cable, at the very least. And then, you gotta buy a special kind of brick. Extra cost, extra things, more wires, more cables. Meanwhile, the cheapest of cheap Android smartphones come with some kind of fast charging. The Moto G6 for example, $250 smartphone. It comes included with a fast charging brick. Now, it’s not really consumer friendly when you offer a feature but it also involves buying lots of other things for using that feature.

Let’s move on to iOS for a little bit and I want to talk about default apps and your choice, basically. What kind of choice you have as an iOS user. Let’s take email for example. So, you click the email link and it takes you to Mail, even though you have Gmail and that’s your preferred email app. Well, when someone sends you, say, a link to a website, and you tap it, your iPhone will take you to Safari, even if you prefer using Chrome. I feel like I should be able to set whatever app I like for emails or anything.

Something that a lot of Apple people complain about with Android phones is it comes with all this bloatware, all the bloatware, all the apps, and too many apps, and all that stuff. And to a certain extent, that’s true on certain phones, absolutely. But, hey, you know what, actually the iPhone has a bunch of apps too, that you can consider bloatware. The Watch app, TV app is there, the Home app – what if you don’t have a smart home? I mean there’s a lot of bloatware here, right? This is bloatware. Keynote, you know, when are you gonna do a presentation on your phone?

Android is just more efficient with the way you use it. It’s just smarter, it’s just like a better design. Say I wanna go into the Bluetooth settings, change something, switch to a new device, pair with a new device, I have to go into the Settings app. I’ve gotta find Bluetooth here, and finally, eventually get to Bluetooth. But with Android, you know, it’s a quick swipe down and hard tap on the Bluetooth icon and you’re there. It’s not hard, I’m not saying this is like some crazy, terribly designed user interface. It’s just harder than Android.

There’s no such thing as a perfect device. At the end of the day, it just depends on what kind of user you are. But, if you want a little bit more control, if you like to customize more, Android is probably for you. But, if you’re perfectly happy on your iPhone then, hey, stick with iPhone. Or, can I move?

  1. 1. Obama had no right to auction off the internet at ANY of these monoliths mentioned. The net was developed by OUR people; it BELONGED to our people for that reason. And without an internet, they would have to purchase pieces if it for exotic applications, and we would not be gouged blind by them. 2. Arrogant? Try autocratic. Fresh water is next by the way, as legislators market fresh water sources that never BELONGED to them; which are then marketed back at massive markups (the same as the Iraqi oil we traded 3 trillion to grab for Exxon). Like Apple's roof diving Japanese, and others, we are all becoming quite overtly enslaved, Coca Coca, Nestle, Exxon, Apple, etc., now regard you more as peasantry than as clients. 3. Biometrics. It took me a day to figure out why my screen kept going blank when I looked away from it (at all). That was because the camera (iPhone x) was WATCHING MY EYES. And if it noticed I was looking away, it assumed I was not INTERESTED in watching. Likewise (and this I can NOT adjust) it keeps SWITCHING OFF my music, if it thinks I have been listening long enough. So I have to keep turning it back ON. You think these people are merely inconvenient (to your keyboard)? They want your voiceprint,, your thumbprints, your facial features recorded, and possibly your retina available to scan (why not?). They can log every keystroke, track your online and physical presence, spike your next vaccination (there seems to be a demand) with microscopic transponders. And your concern is how suitable they are to your instruments? Big Brother is here. The gps that follows, the mike that listens, and the screen that watches you, whether your machine is on or not; have all arrived. Monopolies are the things that offer the ludicrous deals, because they are the only ones that are. And Apple will be a critical instrument of surveillance and control. Shooting wars are being supplanted by computer virus programed to switch off not your screen or music, but your power grid. Your cellphones can be likewise, and at the scale of a city , as they were in Lindon when a subway was bombed. Enough of hating Apple because their tech and ethics are dubious; they need to be busted up.

  2. I'm not surprised that Apple creates problem and make money on it

    I'm surprised that people are still blind enough to don't say stop about it

  3. And people buy this for show off 🙄
    Buying iPhone doesn't worth your money because they removed headphone jack and charger everything whenever apple updates all the features goes from the phone

  4. When he mentioned Motorola, it's true, you get a cool phone, that it's battery lasts at least 2 days, using it a lot, and it charges back to 100% in less than 1 hour 30 minutes

  5. Iphones spy its own user and android is more specifiq we can download gg lol. We can download minecraft free. We can hack. Not like iphone noob trash steve junks.
