The iPhone 13, which debuts in the fall, will replace the lightning port and rely on MagSafe magnetic charging. This hardware adjustment may have a great impact on the system recovery process. In the future, users can use the "Internet recovery" mode to re install the IOS system without connecting to a Mac or PC.
Apple is studying how to completely re install the IOS system on the brick iPhone without a physical port. According to appleosophy's rumor, the main method is to implement it through a mode temporarily called "Internet recovery".
Apple's software team is said to be working on three ways to put the iPhone into a recoverable mode.
The user will put the iPhone into manual recovery mode and trigger the network recovery broadcast. This is received by a nearby MAC or a PC with iTunes installed, and it will prompt the user to complete the rest of the recovery work.
The device enters the recovery mode, and then the same prompt appears
Bluetooth is used as the "last resort" to broadcast signals and transmit data.
Apple is thought to be interested in using the first two methods for recovery options, and has obviously been testing these processes for some time. However, it is said that these processes are too slow for public use at present, which indicates that more work is needed on this issue.
Although the wireless recovery option is the focus of the effort, physical access is still not completely forgotten. A hardware team is obviously considering pogo pads to start a physical connection without having a standard port. At present, some people suggest that apple can hide the pads in the back of the SIM card slot and use a customized SIM card cable to interface with it.
Hidden ports are not new to apple, such as the ports on the back of Apple TV and apple watch. However, it is said that the team studying this issue will not allow the modification of the shell, such as shielding the pad behind the door or panel, which may make the development more difficult.
