Apple is changing the iPhone port (But don’t panic) 

The upcoming iPhone 15 is most likely to feature an all-new USB port. This means Apple will be finally ditching the lightning port that has been the integral part of all the iPhone models since 2012. Apple could have made the decision to shift iPhone’s charging port to USB-C for several reasons. Firstly, USB-C is a default charging port for many popular devices like Android phones, as well as for many laptops and other devices. As a result, Apple users could easily use the chargers of Android and other devices for charging their own devices. Secondly, European Union recently passed a law that requires all smartphones sold in the EU to have a USB-C charging port by 2024.


X to use public data to train its AI model

However, its importance was often overshadowed by more powerful word processors like Microsoft Word. A recent survey also found that only 3% of Windows users used WordPad on a regular basis. Hence by all means Microsoft’s decision to kill WordPad after 28 long years is not at all surprising.

Samsung and LG have announced that they will be working together to make their smart home appliances compatible with each other’s apps.
