That irritates me in MacBook

2 years, 9 months ago
I use makbuky about 1 year, I use it daily and many. Before I sat on Ubuntu and Windows. And when I bought MacBook that I expected that reasonableness of OS and convenience of use will be above any praises. After all it Apple and inflated price creates at me the overestimated expectations concerning quality. But alas in practice everything was not so ideal as I considered. Many defects come from fundamental approach of Apple in which they put design above convenience and very often it turns out so that what they do beautiful from the esthetic point of view not conveniently to use in practice.

Bluetooth and Lightning interfaces can undertake transfer of music.

The Japanese source claims, that the new Lightning connector will have the same size, as current, will support special earphones, and also to have the converter from digit in analog that with it it was possible to use the adapter on standard earphones.

It is expected that the 7th iPhone will be one millimeter thinner, than today's leader of Apple, iPhone 6s from 7,1 mm. iPod touch of the sixth generation will also be about 6,1 mm thick, but at the same time the connector for earphones at it is promised to be saved. For support of the new standard of Apple allegedly will release the new version of branded EarPods earphones, with the Lightning connector.

It is interesting that Apple even in the summer of last year issued specifications according to the MFi program which allowed third-party vendors to release the earphones which are connected on the Lightning cable. It is impossible to tell that vendors with enthusiasm began to rivet such equipment – for example, the Philips company in 14 months produced only two models of earphones with such connector.
