Many people who use Apple products are aware of the subtle, yet sometimes annoying, changes that have been made since the iPhone 7 came out. One of the biggest changes being that the new iPhone does not have a 3.5 mm headphone jack, also known as a place for an aux cord. No, it’s not really that big of a deal, but yes it can become pretty aggravating at times because of the fact that you have to have an adapter with you to listen to music from your phone without headphones. Not only has this change been made already, but there is also rumor that there might be more changes coming soon for upcoming devices.

Supposedly the new change that will be something very different from what we are all used to is the charging process. Potentially, in the future iPhones’ charging sources could come from a simple Wifi signal. Apparently Apple was just recently granted a patent to provide this sort of charging system that would essentially make charging your device a lot easier; there would be no hassle with chargers, cords, charging ports, etc.

In my opinion, all of these changes are not really surprising to me. Our technology is growing and expanding with every passing second and sooner or later change is bound to take place. Because there isn’t much that we can do to stop the change, we might as well go along with it all. All it takes is a little bit of adjusting, and the additional changes from Apple can suddenly become routine.
