There are inefficiencies with all energy consumption. We need to focus both on how energy is consumed and created. We need to push for renewable energies and get off of any energy that is causing harm to the environment.OK, so now we have a future where billions of mobile phones charge inefficiently with wireless chargers (which are wired, duh), just to save us from plugging in our device?
Hacks are not a viable solution. Carlinkit is trash for many vehicles.You don't have to buy a new car to convert to wireless carplay. There are lots of dongle adapter on the market search Carlinkit. I have one it works fine wirelessly, doesn't drain that much battery either. lol you guys are really fake news.
I have been using Wireless CarPlay for a few years now (2-3?) and I never experienced any significant drain for short grocery trips or 30ish round trip (= 1 hour total) to college. On long drives, obviously yes, but you would want to plug it in because you aren't going anywhere.CarPlay Wireless is nice but it does eat battery. Need to have it on the charger if you don't want to be significantly drained by the time you get to your destination.
Unless that dongle adapter is made by Apple, it can become a useless brick with an iOS update in the future.You don't have to buy a new car to convert to wireless carplay.

It isn't hack. Not sure why you think it is. I've been using for over a yr works fine on my side maybe has to do with car stereo.Hacks are not a viable solution. Carlinkit is trash for many vehicles.
If Apple released a 1st party solution I would have no problem with removing the port.
Hahaha. No they won’t, but anyway I doubt iPhone will become portless any time soon.A portless iphone is a dumb idea. Folks aren't going to go buy a new car just because the new iphone has no ports. What's going to happen is that people will pass on the new phone.
You do realize the entire purpose of CarPlay is to *not* have your iPhone mounted anywhere, right? Keep the iPhone in the center console area as it is not something you are supposed to actually use once CarPlay is active. You use the interface on your car to text, navigate, listen to music, make/take phone calls, etc. There is no reason to mount the phone somewhere you need access to, since the display is basically off and you interact with the phone via the car's display.Honestly, I believe that your post is completely backwards. Most of us are allegiant to the Apple product. I want a portless phone. I want car makers to add Qi charging pads to their console array. Is it a dealbreaker of buying a car that doesn't have wireless carplay...not for me? Would I prefer that the car has it, sure. I find that I rarely use the carplay in its current form because of the cabled mess going from my center array to where I put my phone on the other side of my steering wheel. My phone is easier to use mounted magnetically just above and left of my steering wheel.
Some radios that support both CarPlay and Android Auto have two USB ports on the back (inside your dash). One only works with CarPlay, and the other only works with Android Auto. I would suggest looking up the manual for your radio and see if that is the case. If they have it plugged into the wrong one in the back, that would explain your issue.My car is supposed to have CarPlay. It’s never worked and doesn’t even show up. Wired or wireless. ??♂️
I hope you're right. CarPlay aside, the absolutely fastest and most reliable way to charge an iPhone is through a cable. And while aggressive techies and fanbois fail to see this, not everyone wants to throw away good headphones just because (gasp!) they have wires attached. There are legit uses for a lightning (or USB-C) port, even if you don't use them every day.They aren't going portless anytime soon. They just introduced fast charging via USB C not too long ago and been using that as a feature.
I had one of these adapters as well and it did not work reliably with my car. It was $125 and seemed hacked together. I don’t want to have to spend $250 on a polished Apple that might work when my $15 cable works just fine.You don't have to buy a new car to convert to wireless carplay.

A portless iPhone would be a negative thing for some iPhone users. I can't speak on percentages, but I'm sure more than a few people sync things manually from their Mac. It would take a really long time to sync vast amounts of of data wirelessly.
Wireless charging is still slower. It’s also much less efficient (generates a lot of waste heat). And, a wireless Qi charger isn’t going to allow you to use CarPlay.Or I don't know... Maybe buy a Wireless QI charger for the car? I've been using one since the first iPhone that supported Qi came out.
Of course a wired charging connection is going to charge faster, that's not news nor was MagSafe expected to eclipse that. The point is that MagSafe charges faster than existing wireless Qi chargers on the market, which the article you linked to actually shows.MacRumors.
Apple's MagSafe charger charges over two-times slower than a wired 20W USB-C charger, according to a new iPhone 12 video review from the Wall...www.macrumors.com
