So it's not proprietary, which is what I was replying to

Their connector, the magsafe, is proprietary. Sure you can use a Qi pad, but then it has to be lying down on a table and you can't use it normally like when plugged in.

They know this. They know you will still shell out $40 for a magsafe cable that costs the manufacturer extra money to sell as MFi just because it is proprietary.

They are making tens of billions off their cut from cables, apps, subscriptions that they don't even make themselves. This is anti-competitive behavior that hurts the end user
