Apple seriously considered killing the Lightning connector on the iPhone X
Aside from Samsung, all notable Android makers out there crafted iPhone X clones this year that look more or less like the real thing. While some of them deny copying Apple, including well-known companies like LG and OnePlus, it was Huawei that perfectly illustrated the reason why Apple is still the company others still try to emulate. Huawei said that it had its notch-designs for years, but it was too afraid to go forward. What Huawei, and others, needed was Apple to do it first. To take the risk.
A year before the notch arrived, Apple did one other 'courageous' -- we can call it bold, at least -- thing: it killed the headphone jack on the iPhone 7, paving the way for the all-screen iPhone X. And it turns out that the iPhone X could have been the most courageous phone ever created.
